Personal checks - I have always taken personal checks.  I also make it known to 
the buyer that I work full-time for a collection agency.  I have been very 
lucky with the "quality" of my puppy buyers I have dealt with over the years.

My question to you would be; why did you ever except a personal check as full 
ayment? I can understand a personal check as a deposit with enough time to 
lear before the finale payment, which should be cash, money order or certified 
heck. You have been in the "dog business" long enough to know that not all 
ersonal checks will clear for various reasons.
nfortunately, today not all business transactions are like years ago where a 
erson's word and a hand shake stood for something.

ubject: [ SHOWGSD-L ] scam artist amongst us
Ladies & Gentlemen:  I am writing to forewarn you of ever doing "business" with 
ichael Lynch - Blackhawk Farms.  I believe he could be defined as a sociopath.
everal weeks ago, I advertised on another list a solid black 6-month old male 
uppy available.  Mr. Lynch was in the area from California attending some 
errier shows (he is supposedly a terrier and other-breed handler)  He called me 
 came to my home where he purchased the dog, and even bragged about his 
acquisition" to several GSD show lists.  He gave me a check that was ultimately 
eturned to me marked "account closed" - Mr. Lynch of course said the bank made 
 mistake, blah, blah, blah; and even sent me a copy of the "inquiry" he made to 
is bank about this closed account.    I then asked him to send me a money 
rder.  He said he would - I waited a few weeks and didn't get anything.  ( Gee 
 . . what a surprise)  I sent him an e-mail earlier this week & told him if he 
idn't WIRE me the cash by yesterday, November 12, I would report him to every 
howdog list I was on, including an all-breed one.  He feigned innocense about 
ow one goes about wiring
money.  Re the money 
rder he supposedly sent me, he said he got it at a Wal-Mart.  I told him to 
ind his way back to that Wal-Mart & wire me the cash (it goes to any other 
al-Mart in the country in less than 5 minutes).  I got a text message from him 
aying he sent the money in two different transactions.  So, off to my local 
al-Mart I go - he sent me half of the money he owes me, and I fiddled around 
al-Mart texting him back & forth for 30 minutes or more, and never got the rest 
f the money.    Oh, yes - before he agreed to wire me the cash, he tried to 
ell me he would send me an "e Check" from Pay-Pal which would take 5-7 business 
ays.  I told him in no uncertain terms, I did not want an "e" check and did not 
ant to wait another 5-7 days and just wire me the cash.
Now, his telephone is shut off - it just goes to voice mail.  And of course, I 
ried one more time to collect the rest of the money he claims he sent, and the 
al-Mart said no such transaction.
I am almost 65 years old and still cannot believe there are liars and cheats in 
he world like Michael Lynch and to cheat a fellow dog enthusiast.  This was not 
 total stranger.
I know some people will say take this private, but I want everyone to know what 
 liar and cheat he is - I don't want him putting someone else through the 
ullshit he has just put me through.      
While I was accusing him of breaking the law and trying to cheat me, and also 
elling him I have heard of other stories about him (AFTER I sold him the dog, 
nfortunately) he was sending me copies of correspondence from another breeder 
nd AKC, trying to prove to me that he never cheated anyone.   What a sick puppy 
e is.
So, because I threatened him into sending me half the money, should I only send 
y story to half the Lists ???  I think not.
