Ok VERY ANGRY...stop payment day of wedding  

post #1 of 1040
Thread Starter 
Okay so I have this massive six tier cake that is for a wedding TONIGHT.

Bride emails last night just checking in re-affirming delivery time and everything.....email her back, everything is great will be putting finishing touches on cake in the am , cake will be delivered and set up at 4:30pm ( wedd starts at 6pm). Basically confirming everything in our contract.

Okay so this may have benn stupid of me but I let them make the final payment on monday because they were waiting on their tax return to come through ( didnt think it was a big deal, their original check went through and they bank at the same bank so its not like i have to wait for the check to go through)


Okay so I am up at 6am finsihing the cake so i can work on getting cake #2 for tomorrow finished.

Get a call a few minutes ago from a friend of mine at the bank and she said that bride just called and put a stop payment on my check.

The lady that called is a good friend and knew i was delivering cake today so she went ahead and called ( typically bank would send a letter--which wouldnt have been here til monday).

So now I am trying to calm myself so when I call the bride I dont tear her a new one........I am so MAD and just dont know why people want to try and get away with crap like that


Okay, sorry had to vent to someone,

Wow but what a hammer you have to pound her with--but of course I always try to check my understanding of the situation before I commence to shoot.

Well didn't you deposit it yet though? Shoulda already cleared--yes?

I want to believe that people don't really try to pull this crap, and I have read so many threads where they blatantly HAVE pulled that crap. Damn....wtf? I would be so livid. I hope that it is a big misunderstanding......not likely though, eh?

Hope you aren't in for major drama....or having to eat 7 tiers of cake this weekend.

Bride not answering phone call, yes I had deposited it but our bank will "recall" the check if a stop payment has been made. I left a message for the bride saying "i'm sure it's an oversight and you gave the bank the wrong check number to stop payment one, however unless you can come by ( or have someone) and pay cash for the balance before noon I cannot deliver your cake as planned. So either I hear back from her and she pays...or it looks like church wuill be having a very large cake for easter.

Well aint that a bunch of crap? Did the check already go through? I dont think you can stop a check after its been cashed. I am soo sory this has happened to you. People are not nice sometimes and it seems to be more nowdays.

You definitely can stop a check after it's went through. I had a previous employer do it to me. I ended up getting it back but it can happen.

Now if you take the check to that person's bank and cash it, there is nothing they can do.

1. NO cake. Period.
2. I would sue them. I seriously would. You have plenty of proof.

Right. I had a Bride (actually MOB) a few months ago that I had a very bad feeling about, so I went to her bank and cashed it.
