Your customer owes you bad debt, big bucks bad debt, but when you call for payment, he stalls, crawls or simply ignores you. Classic signs of the dreaded disease of “deadbeatitis.” When your customer finally meets with you, he claims that he will pay you in full out of the proceeds of a sale. Don’t wait, seize the moment!
Company X said “carpe diem”! When confronted with all the invoices, its customer admitted that it owed $106,000.00 and claimed that Company X would get paid out of a pending sale. Once burned by prior broken promises, Company X seized the moment and hired me. I immediately sued and obtained an ex parte bank attachment and an attachment of personal property (bulk attachment). I requested and obtained a form of attachment that allowed the sheriff to make multiple attachments of the defendant’s bank account. The attachments caught over $68,000.00. Not surprisingly, the deadbeat agreed to settle the matter now. Within nine weeks my client received $106,000.00.
