Why did I start a service company when I hate people Have a FORMER customer that I had to send to collections. He just sent a cease and desist letter, so they can no longer contact him. He claims that I am a fly by night company and he had to hire Scotts to finish the job because I was no where to be found. I was able to be found, just not on his property, he just couldnt find his checkbook for me to come back and finish the season. We aerated/de-thatched/added topsoil/seeded/fertilized for him, and after it was all done he said I was ripping him off, that my price was too high. He paid me $300 on a $1000 service. Even with a signed contract/copy of a cleared check/and a partially paid invoice I dont have a leg to stand on because he just decided he wasnt going to pay. If this is the case across the country what is the point of being in business for yourself if it is this easy to get away without paying??
