On the topic of debt collection, the most disgusting tale I can think of,
personally speaking, is a certain magazine, published by Expogroup, which
refuses to pay for two features it commissioned last year. And the
reason? It breached the copyright of another publishing house by
erroneously printing a feature I'd supplied as a sample of my work, and got
its knuckles rapped. So... CUHI is faced with taking this publication to
the small claims court, which is a pain for recovering a small amount. The
publication is almost certainly aware of this fact.

The same publication also wrongly debited 1,000 quid from the credit cards
of three web design agencies based in Brighton, as duplicate payments for
display advertisements (the agencies had already paid by cheque). At least
one agency had prolonged difficulties recovering their money. A very dodgy
practise indeed.
