I agree setting up auto debit is the best way to get your payment…I have a couple L/O that do the same thing…SUPER trouble free.
The one point I do not agree with is the statement “if he is in the military he cannot stop it until his debt to you is complete”…I have been in the military for over 15 yrs. I can start an allotment to you today and go down to stop it tommorrow. It’s my paycheck and the money goes where I say it goes.
Although the military has systems in place to help prevent the soldier from running on his bills. All the command can do is put a HIGE amount of preasure on the soldier to pay. If the soldier decides he/she does not want to pay the bill, the creditor would be adviced to pursue the debt through civil means.
I have seen a LOT of reference to the military commanders being able to MAKE the soldier pay the debts lately. This is absolutely untrue. While the soldier may suffer grave consequenses for NOT paying the bottom line is the command can NOT take the money from his account or pocket and pay it.
I just wanted to get this out there so folks would not think someone is going to pay the bill if the soldier decides not to. But by and large the greatest amount of soldiers are still some of the best people to do business with.
Thanks for listening
