    i had a customer owed me 3 cleans, kept promising to pay but never did , i sent reminders,even threatened small claims court, nothing worked

    so i sent her a text,"its now goin to court, youll have the costs to pay, claim number is SCA 90127/9

    She took the bait and paid online straight away!

    [now the SCA 90127/9 , small claim action well it isnt a court ref , it is my own reference nothing to do with a court

    Genius mate.:thumbsup:

    If she fell for that then maybe shes a prime candidate for the old nigerian bank account scam. Can you do a black accent?

    Thomas Higgins solicitors can send you a letter for £2 + vat
    Threating court action on your behalf.

    Never tried it though
