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.




oh my goodness!! if thats the case that is even MORE terrible!!! some people!! Good thing you have a friend that works at the bank!!!
Maybe the only way to do it is to cash each and every check at the bank of issuance to make sure you get paid.... sad icon_sad.gif

icon_evil.gif I would show up at the reception with an empty cake plate and let that bride know you get what you pay for, but I'm mean like that.

I wouldn't tell the person that your friend at the bank called, because she shouldn't have done that.

I'd ask your friend at the bank to make copies of her stop payment for you so that you can document everything for a timeline 'cause it sounds like a blatant case of fraud to me, too!! Small claims court should be in your future and since she broke your contract first, I don't know how she could bad mouth you if her 6 tiered cake isn't at her reception!! SHEESH!
NO PAYMENT - NO CAKE!

Since she has paid for half, I would cut the cake down the middle and deliver it to her. You pay for half, you get half. Have a happy marriage.

I want to see the cake.

This is a good point. Confidentiality rules for banks are serious business. I would definitely get copies of all the paperwork from the bank, but I would do it officially and leave your friend out of it. You certainly don't want to jeopardize her job because she was watching out for you.

My god the nerve of some people....and it just seems like people are doing crap like this more often. Everyone believes they are entitled to something for nothing and feel no remorse for wrong doing anymore. What happened to having a conscience?

I'm persuing my license right now and honest to god, stories like this make me question if I should start my own business. Thank god you had a friend at the bank that was kind enough to tell you about the stop payment. I'm with pianocat, this sounds like this was planned.

I woud not tell the woman about your friend calling, that could get your friend in a lot of trouble if the bank found out she did that. I really hate that this happened to you.

I agree with taxlady1.

or you could deliver the cake, then call the cops cause it would be theft of service and she would be arrested......But I don't know since you already know she stopped payment. But I would call the cops.


Just like if you go to a restaurant and eat then leave without paying.

Can you say breach of contract and promissory estoppel, boys and girls? Sure you can!

I hope she enjoys being summoned to small claims for her wedding present. And dealing with guests who have no cake to eat.

I'd like to clarify one thing I said-that" if she doesn't have a cake she'll tell everyone you didn't do what you were supposed to". What I meant by that is- that would be her explanation for having no cake. She will make it 'all about you.' Small claims court for sure.

Why shouldn't she have done that? The bank has to alert you anyway. She just did so more quickly than usual because she knew about the situation. No one learned anything they weren't supposed to know about, after all. (Unless this isn't part of your friend's duties. Then it might be questionable.)

I agree: It wouldn't surprise me if this was premeditated. And isn't that sad? icon_sad.gif

My bank called me when someone put a stop payment on a check. I think that for some banks at least that's normal business practice. It protects the customer who will have the amount of the check deducted from their balance, and prevents them from incurring overdraft fees.
