I need some advice. I am not going to bad mouth a person who owes me a debt, I figure their actions have spoken for themselves....
I made ten pens quite a while ago for a person I considered somewhat of a friend.
It has been a long time and I still have not been able to collect on his debt....(371.00) I have gotten several replies to both mine and the wifes emails to him asking that he please send the $$$.
I always get the same answer..."I know I owe it and I am gonna pay this Monday"...not sure which Monday he is referring to?...
My wife works at the courthouse and certainly knows the right people to contact to start collections....I really have hated to up to this point.
I can imagine him being in the "lending" business will not speak well for him when the County Civil processor shows up at his place of business to serve him papers as well as the business since the pens were done for him to give to his "preferred" clients.
A part of me hates to do that over just $371.00 (no interest either) the other part of me says "It's my money he has...go after him and make him feel like crud"
So...would you go the "Civil processor route" or,... email him on a weekly (Monday) basis and ask when the $$$ is coming or is that harassing him?
I've also got a couple others who haven't "Paid in full" for work done on their houses which is large enough I am going to turn that over to collections, but I'm interested in hearing what or how you would handle the pens problem?
Wife says I am too nice and it's time to do something
