Landscaper calls the police about a customer who refused to pay

After a landscaper called the police over clients who allegedly refused to pay him, he shared the aftermath in a viral TikTok video that has amassed over 2.1 million views.

The landscaper, user @vencegarcia713, posted the footage of the customer’s alleged arrest along with the text on the screen: “When a customer refuses to pay.”

In the video’s description and comments section, the TikToker provided more details on the situation, claiming that the client refused to pay him $820 for the work already completed. The creator also said that the woman’s father allegedly asked the police officer to verify his green card.

The landscape gardener later added that the customer is said to have said when she was arrested that her husband was also involved. This prompted some commenters to joke that she effectively “threw him under the bus.”

However, many viewers showed support for TikToker’s actions.

“Theft of service,” wrote one user. “It’s good that you called the police.”

Another added: “Now it’s going to cost her a heck of a lot more in court fees and she still has to pay now that she has a file.”

A third asked: “Why did they do business with you if they were so concerned about your green card issue?”

Others were more divided, with several commenters saying that the user should have taken a 50% deposit instead of waiting for all the money at the end. “I’ll never understand why private companies don’t do this,” said one viewer.

The Daily Dot contacted user @vencegarcia713 via TikTok comment.
