Trust is a two-way street. I've a 'customer' still owes me a couple of hundred pounds from a saddle he bought six years ago. All because he gave me a sob story I was stupid enough to believe. I'm too easy-going.
I do sleep nights, though.
If you loan out the saddle, take a cheque and cash it. You can always give it back.
