One scout group has filed small-claims lawsuits against people who failed to pay up. .............. The amounts owed by two couples and three other women ranged from $301.42 to $1,485.68. "We call many times before taking this step," Slowinski said. "We send them letters. When all else fails, this is our last resort." Form letters that preceded the legal action read, "Please note that nonpayment for Girl Scout cookies represents fraud," and advised the non-payers to arrange a repayment plan.
