Just curious how people in the business deal with customers that refuse to pay. I've had mediocre success with small claims courts. Anything near $1,000 usually involves a contract that I get a down payment from the customer, so I haven't had any trouble in that area. It's more so the random service calls or pool openings people don't want to pay for.
The reason I'm asking this is because I was browsing the web today and found another pool company's website that had a "dead beats" section that listed the names,addresses, phone numbers, and money owed of non-paying customers.
