Paying A $1,200 Bill With Coins = Lawsuit

When it comes to paying your bills, some people would rather try and make a statement, than to do it the easy way. A client in the United Kingdom was upset with his accountant’s fees and decided to express his irritation by paying him in coins.  But, in the end the accountant got the last laugh by filing a lawsuit.

Robert Fitzpatrick dumped five crates of coins on the accountants front lawn. He paid his bill technically, but there was one little problem, it violated a local law stating coins can’t be used for large payments — so the accountant sued.

The accountant sued for the original amount owed, plus another $500 for storage of the crates. He won in court, but didn’t get the storage fees.
