Hi guys, Could anyone give me some information on the correct process for chasing bad debts. I currently have 1 outstanding invoice for £250 for a website I have built for a local small business. Its not a lot of money I know, but in today's economic climate its cash I really need. I have sent 1 email over 2 month ago asking for payment. About 3 weeks ago the man sent me a personal message on a forum I use saying that he would pay within 2 weeks. Two weeks passed and no cheque arrived so I returned the private message on the forum politely asking where the payment was. The lad now claims he is having financial difficulty and wants more time. So not wanting to appear heavy handed Ive asked for payment within 2 weeks and explained that I'm skint too. I would like to be prepared to deal with this matter officially if possible. Any advice would be appreciated. Also if the guy does not pay up, am I within my rights to close his site and place a bed debt notice on the home page.
