How much do u charge?
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: I sold a horse. Money was due by Oct/2015.... that was a year ago. I have been waiting for payment and just started hounding the buyer. I got a reply today, I don't like the tone and the level of control in this reply. How do I respond in Lawyer jargon, accepting the payments and taking control of the email?
JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine.
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: OK. She offered to make payments, I just want to simply reply in Lawyer vocabulary..... Here is the email:
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: no Good afternoon.
We are in receipt of your voice mail on Friday October 21, 2016 regarding payment on the 2016 Warmblood Colt.
As you may be aware, that colt was supposedly sold as of three months ago and was being held pending the trainer’s client receiving his bonus check. This transaction had a bill of sale, a successful pre purchase exam and we had the trainer’s word that the client would be purchasing the colt. As does happen many times, two weeks ago the trainer made contact with us and stated that the client no longer had the funds to purchase the colt and was not willing to finance it in spite of having a contract
in force. This nullified our ability to pay you outright for the colt in full as was the original plan.
In lieu of that fact we are sending to you a short series of checks to pay off the colt. The first can be cashed the first week of November for $1000. The second will be a check for $1000 which can be deposited the first week of December and so forth. If in fact we do sell the colt, the balance of the checks will be able to be cashed immediately as well and you will be notified immediately. In addition, we are beginning to list the rest of our 2016 foals that are for sale and any additional funds will go towards paying off this amount to you earlier as well.
The checks will be mailed tomorrow via Priority Mail and we will email with the Tracking Number.
We hope that this will be a successful resolution to the outstanding debt.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no, just read the above, short email
