O.K. guys, tell me about this one:

PCV/MURCOR asked "Can you do a drive-by"...? Really busy here, but for a fat fee, o.k. I said. No big deal...I'll have it done by Friday. Don't know who in the heck they are, but o.k. The check will be overnighted! Great!

Research Began: ......It's a REO (Red Flag #2) located along the Atlantic Ocean, listed for almost a mil (Red Flag #3) has 2 structures and is zoned COMMERCIAL! .......................I'm outta here!

Sent that one back REAL quick and lost 45 minutes!

At least it was only 45 minutes, and that problem may have saved you from sending a report that was never to be paid. Every time I hear that "we will over night a check" thing, it makes me cringe and very suspicious.
Now give us some odds so we can bet if you get the over night check.

Im going more into depth on the old stand by;

"In God We Trust, All Others PAY Cash"

and with a recent run in with an attorney, and with the push on for all this work, this will be a stout meaning in my book. I can see a lot of NON-PAYMENTS comming. Turned down several jobs so far, and ya-send me the check and then I'll put you on my schedule.
