This is to help ensure JB-Nets, LLC’s Billing & Accounting that a customer is aware of the pending charge. Any remaining amount due will be invoiced with a due date of Net Due 10 days after the date of the service call. A customer has up to 30 days from the day they receive this invoice to pay the remaining balance owed.
