Very angry now

I had a guest order $123 worth of PL online 4-27-12
the check came back NSF on 5-8

I have since called guest 2xs and even sent her a copy of the letter from MY bank
Tuesday I spoke to her, told her I NEEDED THIS PAYMENT ASAP TO COVER MY BANK ACCT. She said she was just about to jump in the shower & then would be right down. I waited 2 flippen hours & NO SHOW
I had running to do so I called l/m and said I have running to do but I need that PAYMENT TODAY! Just leave it on my porch in the slot by door

NO PAYMENT!
EVERYTIME I CALL I HAVE TO L/M
THIS IS JUST SOME CHUMP CHANGE CHECK EITHER $123.83 plus $12 overdraft charge!

You can file a police report and contact your local magistrate to see about filing in small claims court.

Personally, if I were still a consultant I wouldn't like that feature on the on-line ordering. I didn't realize it was set up so that the order would be processed/shipped without the consultant confirming that the check had cleared.

Life..it's not for the timid.

Let me rephrase that:
she placed her order online and paid hostess.
Stuff went to Hostess and she has delivered it already

STILL NO CALL BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was the check written to you? If it was, then the procedure I mentioned earlier is what you need to follow, since she seems to be avoiding you.

You should have instructed your hostess not to deliver until all checks have cleared. I would show up at her house unannounced, with a police officer if you can get one. She's clearly avoiding you.

Leave her a message that you will be taking it to court if you don't hear back from her with payment by **** date.

If you end up having to take it through the court system she'll owe you a whole lot more than just the amount of the check and the overdraft fee. She can be held liable for any court costs, attorney fees (if necessary), plus other incidentals.

Threaten an attorney - that usually does the trick.

I am no longer a consultant but when I was this happened to me once and when I said attorney she magically found the money to pay me.

I wouldn't pay an attorney. You can visit the state's attorney and their office can tell you what to do and can even help you obtain the money once you've followed the steps they require. There are actually criminal AND civil penalities in Illinois.

Here's some facts:


(810 ILCS 5/3‑806) (from Ch. 26, par. 3‑806)
Sec. 3‑806. Any person who issues a check or
other draft that is not honored upon presentment
because the drawer does not have an account with
the drawee, or because the drawer does not have
sufficient funds in his account, or because the
drawer does not have sufficient credit with the
drawee, shall be liable in the amount of $25, or
for all costs and expenses, including reasonable
attorney's fees, incurred by any person in connection
with the collection of the amount for which the
check or other draft was written, whichever is greater,
and shall be liable for interest upon the amount of
the check or other draft at the rate provided in
subsection (1) of Section 4 of the Interest Act.
Costs and expenses shall include reasonable costs
and expenses incurred in the non-litigated collection
of the check or other draft.

A person who undertakes a non-litigated collection
against the person who issued a check or other draft that
is not honored upon presentment shall make a written
demand by certified mail, return receipt requested,
delivered to the last known address of that person in
order to become eligible for any costs and expenses in
excess of $25. The written demand shall demand payment
within 30 days of the mailing of the demand and shall
include notice of liability for the costs and expenses.

Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes. Life is not about stuff.

Hey Ang~ just a thought, if it's a local bank, you can try going to the bank directly to cash the check. I had someone do that to me once- and never could get her to call me back. So I took the check to her bank, cashed it there. Yes, I didn't get my return fee, but I wasn't sitting without the money for the order. Funds do have to be available in the account in order for the bank to cash it.

That's alot of nerve, to try to return something she hadn't paid for to begin with.

Glad you finally got your money.

I'm glad you got your money. What I did the one time that this happened to me was that I called the bank once a week and explained the situation. The bank was in a town about 40 minutes away. They usually told me there were no funds but then one day I called and they said yes, the check would clear so I hot footed it over to the bank and this was probably a couple of months later - but I got my money!!!
