"In the case of a tradesman demanding for a bill only slightly overdue you will usually find they have done poor work or slow work if you're at all solvent and paying your bills. Don't say 'We're too poor and we can only send you a little but we will try.' ... Say properly 'I don't see that your bill is much overdue. It takes a bit of time to pay a bill you know. I will check over your account and see if it is all right. And by the way, people who dun us either have insufficient finance to handle our business or something is wrong with their bill. I am setting your bill aside for audit and if you call again about it, we will sever the account."

-- HCOPL of 28 March 1965, "Emergencies and Accounts Personnel"

Anyone following this insane policy will soon find themselves on C.O.D. with those vendors who would even bother doing business with such a firm.
Applying this policy will burn bridges for the perpetrator.
Threatening to cheat someone and accusing them of wrongdoing just because they want timely payment comprises the fast road to economic suicide.
