Papa, I’m sorry this happened and has gotten under you skin. I can’t fully sympathize because I’ve not detected anyone trying to rip me off. I would probably feel the same way though, if they did try. I have not yet sold anything on the Internet either so I’m not fully prepared to deal with the fraudulent attempts. I agree that cash or MO is the most fool proof. A check adds a lot of time to the process, though I might spend some time on procurement, as in finding the best prices and where to get things. A fraudulent check is prosecutable at minimal expense and usually expenses covered at end.
I charge 50% up front and nothing happens until l receive that in hand (bank). The rest is labor and profit, mostly labor. :( That steep up front discourages even some legit customers, but I’m not going to let myself get desperate. When I pay cash for something, I ask them if they are still taking these bad govt checks. They just smile and hand me change.
The memory will remain, but moving on with the wisdom of hindsight is good and proper. Don’t drag your chin too far, it just gets more sore. And the wound leads to an infection called “furniture disease”. That’s where your chest falls into your drawers!
BTW, you can stick your chest out over that chest! It’s beautiful.
