    Last year I started my own business and it's been doing great. I have such great clients and they are happy with my service. We are a 3 man operation here and my accountant recently noticed that we are beginning to have a higher volume of past due accounts. We have reached out and sent invoices but have not been having much success. I was thinking of just writing them off but maybe there is another option. I thought about calling an attorney. Has anyone else run into this and what did you do?

    Reach out with your telephone and make sure the clients have received the invoice and ask when you can expect payment.

    just show up at their door and ask for the money. :twisted:
    Stop being a bank!
    Collect payment before, during or after the work is done, but don't leave until you are paid.
    don't take checks on move-outs or move ins-- since you wont be able to tell the difference.

    Maybe we could scare the scams away from here like....

    "Hey MandiR1018. That's a pretty name. Could you show us a picture of yourself?"

    Was that creepy enough?
