Ok VERY ANGRY...stop payment day of wedding - Page 2  

post #16 of 1040
Yikes! If it's all true...what nerve! Wouldn't this be fraud? Grounds to sue? I'd certainly check into it!

beck30, is this what you are trying to do? Each posting has a box in the upper right corner that says "quote." If you click on the quote box, the entire posting comes up in a reply box. You can delete whatever you don't want to show up, but be sure to leave the first [quote=....] and the [/quote] at the end. HTH.

As soon as I hear someone say "waiting for a check" a red flag goes up. If they can't afford to pay for something then they should not order it.

This bride should have saved up the money - paid you and then said thank you. End of story.

Sorry to hear this happened - people wonder why cake people get cranky!

Don't you dare even leave the house with that cake unless they have paid in full in cash for it! That's really some NERVE! Even though I would be mighty PO'd about it, I would happily find the nearest old folks home/women's shelter/orphange etc and give them the cake to enjoy. Then I would sue the asses of the B&G!

Good for you! And STICK TO YOUR GUNS no matter how much she pleads and begs and makes up a big sad sob story. No money; no cake!

That's a nice idea to donate the cake to your church. You know the people at church would appreciate having a beautiful, delicious cake if this gal doesn't pony up.

This goes way beyond thoughtless! If it's true, the bride is stealing and thought this out beforehand. Theft by deception, maybe?

Could it be that the bride thought you would not find out about the cancellation so soon?? Normally you don't. Could be that she was going to have a cake at her wedding and then later you would find out about the check. That is fraud. I would also think if they didn't have the money and you don't bring the cake, she will tell everyone that YOU didn't do what you were supposed to do! I would definitely let the venue know! There are laws in some states that make it illegal to stop payment after the fact for something you have contracted them to do. I would check if I were you.

Well you know, that's what I was thinking, too. That she was counting on the OP not finding out in time and still getting her cake.

I just don't understand people sometimes.

I'm thinking the bride was counting her eggs before they were hatched. She probably didn't get her refund check when she thought she would. Like someone else said, she shouldn't buy things she can't afford.

Obtaining goods under false pretenses. This is a serious crime.
