Images patron purchase check bounced

I am wondering if anyone out there has had the same problem with their patron purchase check from Images in New Smyrna Beach. I had a patron purchase after 3 p.m. on Sunday, therefore a check was not written to me that day. It was supposed to be mailed out on the following Tuesday. I received it about 2 weeks later and after taking it to the bank, it was returned for nonsufficient funds. The check was not large, $47.93, but I also got a $10 fee for the returned check. There went my profit. I emailed Nance at the show and also called, leaving a message, No response yet. This was my first time at Images and I am really upset!!!

Yes, I am happy to say I got my money and the $10 fee my bank imposed for the NSF check. It took almost two months and numerous calls and emails. Nance did apologize too. I guess it pays to be persistant, but it should never have happened.

Did You Ever Get your Money from Images?????

Seems they are in need of an accountant. It's just wrong:(

I think Images has become extremely political and for the large part overrated. I found some photography to be quite nice at this show but I also found several booths displaying pieces that were neither framed nor matted. One particular vendor was offering the piece as being the size of the unmatted board. When I commented that was not the true size of the photograph and what he was doing was a little deceptive, the reply was "you cut it down to whatever size you want. I will never again apply to this show.

This also happened to a friend of mine a few years ago, it took her almost a year to get her money. Just be very persistent and keep contacting them about it.

I have done this show for 25t years , and I would not worry. They have a fantastic patron program; it would be great if all the shows had half the $$$$$ Images doles out; great local support . By the way have them pay the bank fee, can't lose to ask;

This happened a couple of years ago to a friend of mine and they did make good on it. It was for much more than the amount you show...can't imagine that size check bouncing ... usually that show conflicts with some others so haven't done it for awhile. What a disappointment.
