has anyone ever thought about .50 cal chain guns on deadbeats? might this be cheaper than leins? after all if they don't sell their house you don't get paid....

I offer a free Roundup treatment for non payers. If they care about their lawn they will pay. If they don't or don't believe you make them believe you. Round it UP! Some will say this isn't professional but how about this, I am a professional and I pay my damn bills. So tell them to pay up or their lawn will brown up. IT WORKS.

Be creative.............. write deadbeat in there frontyard with Roundup. Naaaaaaaa, just kidding, don't do that. <p>Call your Magistrate Judge and see if there is some other way of collecting your claim.

I have a real piece of **** we did sprinkler work for last winter. I haven't been able to get a dime out of his sorry ass. I knew what type of person he was when he hired us, and against better judgement I did work anyway. The POS is a sales manager at a local Chevy dealership. When we mow near his house now, he, his wife and kids all go hide in the house. I am about to snap and beat the **** out of this MF.<p>Lawrence, I agree with your grass killer of choice.

Keith, Just give the debt to a collection<br>agency,and they'll send the hired goons around. People here who do our collections<br>send guys out who have hate and kill tatooed<br>on their fingers.<p>Karl<br>

I think gusbusters idea about charging interest is good. Do you have a contract with this written in? How much are you charging? Extra 10%-20%? How much grace period 30 days to pay and late after? Just trying to see what works. Thanks
