Important business tip... don't deliver goods until they are paid for.
If you accept installments .. you hold onto the article until all the payments are made.
It's foolish to offer credit to strangers when you don't have a clue if they have any ablility to pay.. which clearly this fellow did not.
I was also just going to mention that. I would never, NEVER, be paid in installments from someone I didnt not know, or trust. Tough lesson on being nice to strangers!
