    Independent Contractor I provide services. Yes I get paid evenutally but just when theres money in his bank to clear the funds. should I write a letter too the company a invoice demanding to get paid. no i dont get the money paid back for the bad checks. Im in Florida and its the only work ive found before this company I`ve been out of work from 6months.

    Mike CMike C,Obviously this company is not taking you seriously or know that if they got away with it once they can get away with it again. Your best bet is that you start charging them a $29.00 dollar Bounced check fee plus any other charges that may apply such as late fees. At one point this was happening to me with one of my customers, so I toughened up my Check policies, and added a $29.00 dollar bounced check fee plus a $49.00 late fee and a $150.00 cancellation and restitution fee. (if they decide to play games and not pay). So for a $49.99 service charge, if their check bounces they are looking at about $128.98, and if they can`t pay I simply disconnect them and they have to pay all the fee`s mentioned above and I won`t turn their service back on till all fees are cleared. (this only applies to checks)I hate to be harsh but they have to understand that every company in America does it, why shouldn`t I? try being late on your car payment or cell phone, don`t they shut you off? same principal. I hope this helps... Nuevolution2007-8-9 13:15:39
