I had a customer who had defaulted on his payments for work I had done on his property. I always ask for a 25% deposit before commencing work, which he paid with no quibble. When it came to paying the balance, though, he stalled. I then found that he had left the area, but, conveniently, no one seemed to know where he had gone. I just didn't know what to do. That money was my livelihood and would have covered my mortgage payments for months. I hired East London Detectives to try and find him. They investigated very thoroughly and eventually found him through legitimate channels. I took him to the small claims court to get my money back. He is only paying a few £s a week until he pays off his debt, but for me it's better late than never!
