Heres the deal. Last December (12/04) a non-customer that lives at one of the local county clubs called and wanted a leaf clean up. As I always do with non-clients I quoted him a higher than normal price because frankly I don't like one time calls. But he bit so I sent a crew over to do the job. He came out as they were finishing and told them he was absolutely wowed at the job we did and gave them a check on the spot even though I had told him we would bill him after they completed the job. He went on to ask them if we could take over all of his lawn and landscape care for the coming season (2005). They told him it would be up to me but they would certainly let me know. Of course everything seemed fine so I took him on as a client. We started his mowing in March of this year and then SOB wouldn't you know it we never ever got paid on time again. Each month it was always some BS excuse and he even got as much as 2 complete months behind. I suspended his service twice before I finally cut him off the middle of October. Normally I would have never allowed a client to get this far behind but for some reason I tried to work with this guy. Even if he had finance issues if he would have just been upfront and honest with me I would have worked with him. Anyway, I had to file a lien on his property to get paid and when I did I found two other liens also which of course just explains the "country club" living..meaning he like many of them are in way over their heads. So, here the question. A couple weeks ago I was going to give a landscape maintenance estm in on the same street and saw another LCO cutting and doing this bozos leaves. Now I know he will do the same thing to them he did to me....do I tell them he's a deadbeat or let them found out the hard way like I did?
