Question: A customer wrote us a check for services rendered and then stopped payment on it. We provided the service and they paid with a check. They never said that there was a problem with the work but the check was returned to us "stop payment". What is our recourse in this matter? Thank You, Phyllis
If you are entitled to payment for services rendered, you may want to first write a letter to the customer demanding payment for your services. If you are still unable to receive payment/ come to an agreement, and the amount due you is less than $2,500, you may want to research whether a small claims action is appropriate for your situation. (Click on link provided for more information). If you are owed more than $2,500.00 it may be worth discussing the matter with an attorney.
