What is the best course of action for a bad check.

I had a guy buy half a beef from me. I delivered it to the processor and the guy left a check with the processor for me. I cashed the check.to find that the guy had stopped payment on it. He says it's because he didn't receive all the product. He wanted some very unusual things and apparently did not relay exactly how he wanted some parts to the processor effectively. The processor has bent over backwards to get the guy what he wants.

He is supposed to go to the processor tomorrow to pick up the remainder of his corrected order, and bring cash for me. BUT he is saying if the order is not exactly how he wants it that I will not get paid. I am not the processor I just sold the animal.

Does anyone here have experience in a similar situation? Any advice if he decides not to pay?

I have sold a boat load of beef the same way as you and have never had a problem with a bad check. You however are dealing with a scam artist. I would call or pay a visit to the local District Attorney. If he kept one ounce of the meat, his check had better be good , If he has a problem, It all has to be returned or I would treat it as stolen property. When he picked up the meat, left payment and left the locker plant, He accepted the order, period.

Stop payment and bad check are not the same, that being said sounds like he's trying to beat you down on price. Either he pays in full or you make a concession in price or if it was me I would tell him I'm coming to pick up my meat and I would reimburse the locker.

Yes he has all the meat. Get this... The screwed up part of the order is that he wants the head with the skin on but hair removed. He also wants the hide with the hair removed. TO EAT. He has all the truly edible parts already. This is the first time I have ever had a problem selling like this.

The guy is a doctor and is now claiming that his wife is a lawyer. Thinks it should get them preferential treatment.

All you mentioned has nothing to do with you, sounds like that's on the locker. This guy sounds like a nut or a foreigner or both. Being his wife is a lawyer she should know you fulfilled your end of the deal and should be payed what's owed. Small claims court is another option, lot's of paperwork but you would probably win at least in Mn.

He accepted the order,,and left payment.He wanted the head and skin? Did he think the head and skin were wrapped into one pound baggies?He is jerking you around,,and I wouldn't talk with him anymore.Start small claims court proceedings immediately.DO NOT accept the meat back.Who knows how he has taken care of the meat once he got it.

If everybody gets a head with their half. I'm thinking a 2 headed calf would be worth more to a circus.

he should have filled out a cutting and packaging list with the processor. If he did then the head and hide request would have been on it and unless your processors crazy he would never have agreed to de hair a head and hide.You only sold him a 1/2 of beef so how does he figure he gets the head and the hide at best a half of each lol.Did a mobile processor kill the beef ? If one did thats where the hide is. He's just trying to scam you so you'll lower the price .I'd file in small claims court and get him served asap.

Technically that constitutes theft. I would have him arrested. See how his Nigerian lawyer wife handles that.

LOL. Couple buddies of mine and I were processing deer back in the day.Had this one guys deer(a doe) all processed wrapped up ready to go.He comes in ,,pays me and takes his meat.Couple hours later he comes back in.Says that's not quite what I expected.I sais we cut just like you wanted it.He says but I expected a LOT more steaks.LOL,,I said then you should have shot a bigger deer.Well,,one of the guys processing with me knew this guy,,and ended up giving him a few packages of steaks off ONE OF HIS OWN DEER,,just to make him feel better.I Told my buddy,,your and idiot for doing that.Why didn't you ask him if he expected an 8 point rack to go with the extra steaks off his DOE.I love how folks will bring in a 90 lb. deer and expect 100 lbs of steaks off it.

So what you are saying is that the Nigerian prince has given up on the emails and is now doing his scams face to face. We are doomed.

He needs to be taken to the train station. If you follow Yellowstone, you will get my drift.

Unless your gonna spend a lot of money there's not a lot you can do. But do request your beef back or payment. Even if you can't get full price something better than nothing. Don't do business with him again. Also check into some federal laws on what he is asking for. I'm not sure a butcher shop can legally sell some of that for human consumption. I had a lady ask for the intestines and stomach. Butcher shop couldn't legally do it. Solved the problem real fast for me. Lol

In the future, if you're going to accept checks, have them given directly to you and make sure the funds appear in your account before delivering any goods or services.


Eh...wot?
