      My company is in Clarksville TN. We had to design an HVAC exhaust system for a mining farm and the guy who hired me's check bounced. I went to the local PD but they said it is Civil. What am I supposed to do he owes me over 10 grand :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

      If you've tried to contact him with no success, you may have to take him to court. Sometimes just the threat is enough. I once had a customer that didn't pay, didn't return phone calls, emails, etc. I finally sent him a certified letter saying if he didn't pay within a week I'd file charges in small claims court. I got the check a couple of days later.

      Depending on your jurisdiction, $10K may or may not be above the small claims threshold.

      I took someone to court and got a judgment awarded because they didn't show but I still couldn't get him to pay. I sent him to a collection agency and they collected right away. I use them for all my past accounts now because it saves me the time of chasing them, and I've even become an affiliate to sign up other business owners and companies. Accounts Receivable took care of me and you can sign up other businesses too and get paid on what they collect.

      Make a legal action by sending a legal notice that the check bounced and has to pay within the specified date given and if they failed to respond or to give a sworn statement then the case will commence against the accused.
