Big companies like that will simply blame this all on some paperwork error
on your part. Most insist on pointing to some obscure (very recent) "policy
change" that YOU didn't comply with in your billing paperwork you submitted
to them. I really hate new construction jobs where you think you're dealing
with the end user (and you are actually) but all the paperwork for payment
gets submitted to the (some big regional or national) general contractor for
payment. Sometime it takes up to 2.5 years (the record for us so far) to get
the paperwork just right so you can get paid. How many vendors just give up
(or go out of business) before that? Plenty I bet. It is just another way to
generate a profit for the big boys. As for any attorneys being upset by you
bringing a case against them, I think not. It is just a another pay day for
them. As for "BOINKS" as well as the other biggies, once you file a suit
them both sides try to settle for pennies on the dollar and you probably
won't get any more work from that general contractor (or "BOINKS"). Not that
you'd want any new business with idiots like this, but when you get into big
projects, sometimes you end up in a shotgun wedding with these guys.

Since you're visiting this group with great frequency please allow me
to inform you that the reason we terminated your relationship with our
company some 18 months ago is because you refused to pay for service
calls, charged us back on accounts you never purchased, placed
customers on accounts not owned by you into collections, and stiffed
us on installations we completed for your national accounts.
In total we estimate you neglected to pay us in excess of $100,000.00.
With the Boinks policy being such as to file lawsuits against
companies that allegedly caused you financial harm we find it only
fitting that we follow your example and file suit against you.
Since the stipulations in your dealer agreement only pertain to
dealers we felt it best suited us to bring this action against your
company in a jurisdiction local to us, rather than your request that
actions be taken in Irving, TX.
Now we can appreciate the concern you might have over litigation
taking place in our backyard, in front of a local jury, and decisions
made by local judges, but let us assure you that we would never use
that to our benefit like you would do if this took place in Irving.
We have also come to the decision that it is only fair to keep the
local newspapers and broadcast news stations apprised of the
situation, so immediately following the filing of our suit we will
offer a press release stating our actions, and what brought us to file
Furthermore, since the equipment used for said service calls, and
national installations was purchased by our company, it remains our
property and we will be placing liens on those accounts until such
time as we have been reimbursed our expenses.
So please pass this on to your legal department, and have them take a
gander at what awaits, but then again they are probably too busy
picking fights with tiny alarm company owners that offer downloading
services and technical manuals.
