    Stop cutting, unless you have a contract signed.....other wise you doing it for free......it sounds like you might be out some $$....

    Definately stop cutting, sounds like this guy has not intention of paying, he was probably moving anyway and was just getting some free cuts, it's unfortunate but it happens

    Sorry to say...it's a no-brainer. Stop.
    Fortunately I haven't had anyone refuse to pay me. Most of my customers remind me :)
    Good luck...hope you aren't out too much :)
    Makes you wonder though if people think they can take advantage of us that are minors...it's frustrating. I've had people tell me my prices are too high, trying to get a good deal, but I'm one of the least expensive in the area. :rolleyes: oh well.

    How long do they have to pay you? My agreement is invoices are sent out at the end of the month and are due back with in 15 days. If they are past their 15 day pay period we stop cutting.

    Stop everything! Unless this is a charity lawn. He should have made some sort of attempt to notify you of what is going on. You're working for free.

    Do not cut the lawn again. He will not pay you. He has moved out.
