Best Pool Finishing Complaint - Pool Repair Service

Review by to on 2007-06-18
Best Pool Finishing last known address: 4130 N.W. 30th Terrace Lauderdale Lake, Fl.33309. ID number 651005761.

I contracted them to do a job and had to stop payment on a check for $500 as the job was not being finished. The job was finally completed and I paid them a check in lieu of the stopped check. Two months later I got a letter from CNS Financial parent of THE CHECK CASHING store Looking for payment on the stopped check and enclosed a copy of the Statue showing that they were entitled to come after the maker for payment. A stop payment is of no value to a customer when FLORIDA LAW allows check cashing stores to cash checks for companies which should be deposited to the company account only. Best Pool Finishing committed fraud and are laundering checks through the check cashing store thus evading taxes. Please post this and maybe it help prevent another customer from being ripped off.

Thank you

Why did the contractor accept/ask for your second payment when obviously he cashed the first check? Did the contractor know about the stop payment before he cashed the check? If not then the check cashing store has a valid claim against you. You're only recourse is to sue the contractor to recover the extra payment. Stop payments get ugly when a third party is involved. Good luck!

Good response, Stew, and for the poster, it's statute, not statue.
