    So when you sue a telemarketing company what kind of money are you asking for and for what reason?

    If it's a company that is worth a lot, we go at it with a class action and anything is game at that point.
    If it's a company that has 50 employees than I file a violation for the maximum penalty per call $1500

    I had one of my loads disappear off the JB Hunt app and tried to call their carrier services line. It's always strait to hold and then voice-mail after a few minutes of waiting. I'm a little worried they are going to try and not pay me which would make them the first to do so.

    They have paid me no problems. Would call if any problems.

    As a company driver who was a floater for a lot of their major accounts I can tell you they are definitely having some financial problems after Corona 2 of their major accounts went bankrupt and closed and then they cut had some major cut backs on at least 5 other accounts but if you talk to them about it they’ll down play or act like they have no clue and everything is perfectly fine

    In the post you quoted I mention why calling them is pointless.

    Sometimes you have to be on hold for awhile. Also the only times I have had to call them is for detention pay. They pay on quick pay next day most times without any issues.

    Again, in the post you quoted I explain why calling them doesn't work. You stay on hold s few minutes and go to a voice-mail that never gets a return call. I'm glad JB hunt is working for you but I'm not using their quickpay at the moment and have been having an overall negative experience with them.

    Eventually is too long. Old rule in small loan thinking: If its over 60, it is headed down P&L trail.
    If you let them alone, they will let your invoice alone. Becoming known as a harsh collector is good.

    Kinda late to the post but I just wanted to share my accounts receivable process.
    At 1 day late, send a reminder email
    7 days late, call accounts payable
    14 days late, send a certified letter with rate con, BOL, and invoice
    30 days late, file a claim on their bond
    60 days late, forward the case to my collector Tucker Albin
    70% of the time they pay after the letter, and 99% of the time they pay after the bond claim. Time is critical in A/R, if there is an actual problem that $75k bond can run out quick and in most cases you need a judgement to collect. The shipper is ultimately responsible for payment, and if they have assets nearly every invoice is eventually able to be paid.
