we have been over it a million times. i'm certainly not the only one who has dealt with dead beat, or late paying customers. everyone says small claims court, mechanics lean, etc. how come nobody just calls the damn police? or goes to the police station and file a complaint of theft? it's the easiest way, i believe. i've never lost yet, and on more than one occasion, just pulling out my cell phone and telling them i'm dialing the police gets me a quick payment. so why on earth doesn't anyone call the cops?
