I was on the Board of Directors for a local company. Collecting those "uncollectibles" was a nightmare. It cost more to take it to the magistrate than you could even recoup so many people just got away with not paying.
My parents use to have a business as well. It was amazing who did not pay. It was typically not the people who struggled to make ends meet. They were very conscious, even if they had to make mini-payments....it was the folks in that big old mansion driving their yachts to work (ok....maybe I over exaggerating to protect the guilty at tad)
