    I remember the days when I took personal checks too....I was raised to believe that when you buy something, you pay for it. If you don't have the money then, well, you don't get the toys.

    Unfortunately my good will has bitten me in the butt too many times this year -- I've had no fewer than 3 "good" customers bounce checks on me. In at least one case, the guy didn't have even remotely close to the amount he wrote me for in his account.

    I still cannot fathom how people can take goods/services from another person and just flat out not pay for them. Amazing.

    Roy, you're a good and trusting man, and I hope your good will shines back on you and keeps the scumbags away.

    I don't know if he is nuts but he's one of the funniest guys I've met. His Murcie conked out on the first day of our 3 day drive last summer and he still managed to show up at the hotel later that night, clear on the other side of the state, with a black Countach and a comely co-pilot.

    I will not hesitate to go to him for a TR when the time comes.

    Must be contagious. My company was started by my GREAT grandfather in 1902 and this year (2006) was the first year that we had to hire a collection agency to go after some delinquent accounts (ie scumbags)...very sad...

    I hear nothing but great things about Roy....when the time comes I will be sending him a personal check and you can guarantee it will not bounce.

    You're kidding me? From your profile your company is a funeral home...people actually bounced checks for a funeral?!

    Not only bounced checks but just plain out walked on a bill....try to repo that. Must be something in the water...it used to be that we would tell the family that we expected payment in 30 days and we got it 99.99 percent of the time. Now we are at the end of our rope on the "easy credit". Too many people taking advantage and WAY too many people that we have carried for 90, 120, 150 days on a bill over $10,000.00

    Makes paying MY bills that much harder...then I have to listen to everyone complain about how expensive funerals are. I actually had a daughter of a deceased woman who owes me over $6000.00 tell me today that she got her mom's insurance money and decided to use it to pay off her credit cards and didn't have anything left over to pay me...her file is going to American Profit Recovery on Monday and I will sue her if I have to.

    That is what makes hearing a story about Roy taking a personal check that much more special...restores my faith in humanity a little :)

    When I write my check to Roy in a few years, you can bet mine won't bounce either! I haven't bounced a check in 20 years, except for the one my WIFE caused, and I stopped THAT immediately.

    So far with my artwork over the last year, I haven't even had one person who's bounced a check, and most of my customers are FChat people. That says a lot for the people on this forum. My hat is off to you guys!

    You are 100% right.. I get 2-3 bounced checks per month from rentals. Major pain in the ass. What I dont understand it why people dont have any interest in protecting their reputation or dont get embarassed by this.

    I had a tenant leave a few months ago and in his file were over 30 bounced check receipts. Eventually, they all pay up - I've never had to go to a collection agency. But its a major pain in the ass....

    Most I'm sure did not know their check account balance...write the check and hope it clears. At least it gets the landlord off their back for 3-4 days.I did not have to use a collection agency either. Only 1 eviction in 15 years.

    A little bit OT here,

    Back in summer '91 in LA when my friend just moved in from Oregon to LA and was looking to buy a car in the $20-$25k range. I drove him around dealers for a couple of days and he finally decided to buy a Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 (nice performance car that not many people know).

    We went to a Mitsu dealer, bargain for about 30 minutes and then it is a deal. He wrote his personal check for IIRC about $22k. We asked the salesperson when should we come back to pick up the car. He said "Just take it now". It was already 6.30 pm and the bank was already closed. We were quite stunned and said it is OK for us to pick it up tomorrow. He said he trusted us and gave us the keys.

    I'm still amazed that somebody believed two 18 year old Asian International Students personal checks and just give the keys. It is only $22k not Roy's $200k deal but still pretty amazing.

    That was the best car buying experience for me. And the VR-4 is awesome, esp. in twisty Mulholland.

    I wish that I were in Lambo-territory with my disposable income, because reading thread after thread like this makes me actually WANT to give Roy money, just because I know that there's no way it could go south... Piece of mind is so important to me, it's not even funny.

    <Sigh>...one day, Roy....one day.
