Just wanted to get a feeling for what people believe is an appropriate amount of time to receive your payout. Last year the person in charge of the paying out didn’t reach out to the winners and they didn’t receive their money until the day of the next years draft.
This year I am in charge of paying out. I have reached out to all winners via a group and individual texts. Telling them I can PayPal the money or meet up and pay them cash. I have only heard back from 1 of the 4 payees. It really isn’t difficult to at least respond to the text.
I am contemplating texting them back on New Years and saying if I don’t hear from them by the end of the Super Bowl that I will be donating their winnings to a local animal shelter. I will keep the receipts for them for their tax purposes.
What are you thoughts. I feel I have tried enough already to reach out to them. I reached out the season winners at the end of the season. I reached out to the Playoff winners at the end of the day yesterday as the Championship has been decided. All the people that responded to the group text were the non-winners.
