Ever had problems collecting payment from a client?

My Story

A few years back, I did some credit work for a client, and his check bounced. Contacting the client did no good, and he refused to make good on the payment. Eventually, I won in small claims court, which ordered him to pay the amount he owed.

 

The Tricky Part

I soon found out, however, that simply getting a decision in small claims court was only the bare beginning of the process! From there, I had go to great lengths to collect on my payment: from placing a lien on his house, to hiring a marshall service to actually seize money from his bank account.

 

Today

Unfortunately, there was little that even the marshalls could do over the years. They could only seize from his bank account what little he had in there when they went, a pittance compared to the sum owed. Now, almost 10 years later, his debt is only partially paid. How frustrating!

 

Anyone else have a horrible experience trying to collect payment from a client? How did you solve it?

I feel for your situation but no, I have never had your experience. As property managers we see the rent payments from the tenants before the client does so we always get our money.
