I have mobile payment app record of a payment to a general contractor. It is tagged as
Reimburse for TheSubcontractor'
The general contractor has already paid TheSubcontractor.
I discovered during a conversation with the general contractor that they actually paid a sizeable fraction less than the amount to TheSubcontractor. To me that's a serious deal - I would label that as a misappropriation of funds. Surprisingly the contractor does not dispute the disparity but also has no intentions on paying the Subcontractor the difference.
While I realize that home renovation / construction can be wild and woolly this seems a bit pointedly so. I'm not sure what a typical/appropriate way to consider handling this would be.
