    i figure if i see that dead beat in town i might just do what i shouldnt. i hope his kids are watching too so they dont turn out like him. i've got away with doing it before for other reasons. small chance i get caught i will have money for bail, plus probably just get community service. if i miss work i dont care, my boss would totally be cool with it and a couple other workers would be glad to get more hours if i had to miss some time. i know it's the wrong thing to do but i know the law and assault isnt really a big deal unless with a weapon or if you seriously hurt them which i would never do. i know its wrong but im gonna do it for all the good businessmen out there and throw the trash down where they belong. i also have no record which means lenience. i just hope i see the guy again. thanks to cell phones though, if anyone i know sees him i will be right on him.
    Are you kidding??? Planning and carrying out an assault someone put you several level below someone not paying a debt. You don't even know why he didn't pay. You assumed that he just chose not too. Think about this, the business he ran is no-longer around, so it is very possible that he lost everything. Do you really want to be know as the person that kicks someone when they are down. I also would not count on your boss looking the other way. Employers tend to frown on those having criminal records. Even if he doesn't what about your next boss??

    also how is that illegal if businesses all over post names of people that write bad checks? i know it's not exactly discussing, but it's not much different. i mean it's showing names of people that wrote bad checks and how much. the town i am in have it it stores all over. the place i work at now they even tell me when someone writes a bad check or owes on their bill. the fair debt collection act can just go in the garbage. people that dont pay their bills should be exposed and i could care less what anyone else thinks.

    also i know several landlords in town. i used to be one myself. they always discuss names of people who didnt pay and who not to rent to and such. if you're right about their being a law like that than they sure dont enforce it lol. where has their ever been a case of this happening to someone where they got in trouble?
    These activity are illegal and can get them sued. More than one company has not only lost what was owed to them, but also additional amounts to cover legal fee and punitive damages. It is also morally wrong. (Don't even try the 'but they wronged me first'. We all know 2 wrongs don't make a right). There are many reasons check bounce, not all of them are on purpose.

    Let it be. I have a tenant who stiffed me $1350 on last months rent at a condo I own. He ended up having other issues with not paying his other debts and his credit was ruined. All I could do was take him to court, and they can order him to pay me.. if he didn't all they would do was ruin his credit.. and that was already done. I chalked it up as a lesson learned. I didn't lose any sleep or time over it.

    Have you talked to your dad about this option? Assault would be a REALLY bad idea.

    And if you assault him and he wins, you get to go to the hospital and then to jail. There are a lot of bad ass people out there. 50 years martial arts, ex military, college boxers, etc and you don't know who they are. Could be just that lucky punch that kills you.

    Assault? Seriously? How about you handle this like a man and not a little boy. Suck it up, your dad might have learned his lesson on taking deposits or getting money upfront for these things. If the business was more secure, you would have not gotten into this situation, so it is not entirely the other guy's fault if your dad let it happen. Who knows, maybe this guy that disappeared got into a really horrible illness, or had some tragedy happen in his life, the last thing you'll worry about is a 600 dollar bill.

    I don't know any business that doesn't occasionally have a bad debt (well, except maybe huggytree's). People and businesses get in over their heads and simply can't pay. You can plan, check credit and references, bill promptly and all that, but sooner or later there will be a receivable you cannot collect. Don't obsess over it. Move on.
