Quick version: PITA customer.........finish the job, she writes me a check on Sunday. Calls me Monday and tells me she was inconvienced blah blah, I need to share some of her cost blah blah (her costs were her fault) and informs me she will be stopping payment and deciding what I should be paid. So PITA woman to put it as polite as possible. Check is for $3500, informs me she is stopping payment. Is this legal? Anything I can bust her on etc or do to get my $? Its like a go buy a $7,000 turbo kit for my car. Call the shop and decide, hmph, what the heck, I'm gonna stop payment on that check and let you know what I decide to pay you for it. I'll be seeing her in court before its over. I'm not informing her of that until I get what payment she decides I should recieve so that I've already got that $ in the bank. If I tell her ahead of time she won't pay anything. Yes I've got her signature on a piece of paper.
