Thing is, he really should pay me $1,620, because we worked another week past the last paycheck, and because the bank dinged me for $120 in fees. None of my checks bounced, but still. I don't think he has that money, though, and kind of want to take the 1,000, cash it, and be done with the dude.

Never signed one, no. But his paycheck, from his business, bounced.

Do you 1099 a lot? If you are going to continue doing independent contract work going forward, you should make sure you get around 50% of whatever you are going to do up front or get it secured through something with intrinsic value. It has not been above me to demand 50% up front, then not turn a system over into production until I get another 25%, then let them pay the last 25% out of good faith unless they have screwed me in the past.

I kept mileage, receipts, and my stories live on on another site, who had a deal with him to share content.

He just texted me. Said he was going to send me another check Monday, he was sorry, and that it bounced because two check to him bounced. Not sure what I should do now.


Sounds legit to me. I wouldn't rush into any legal stuff. probably depends on your trust level with the guy too

if the check bounced that you deposited, how do you plan to cash the check if he has no funds available?

He said he got it all straightened out with his bank. He made a deposit and the checks in that deposit bounced. He didn't know that and hence my check bounced. He's writing me a new one and one covering the expenses. It's all good.
