Thank you. I have copied what you have written here and am forwarding it to the attorney. I will leave high ratings... :)
I do have an additional question that is related to this same issue: We received a check that pays one of our old outstanding invoices for the company that is in receivership. We desperately need to pay our attorney and accountant fees so that we may continue to muddle through our financial situation both on a personal and a business standpoint. There are also outstanding business withholding taxes owed to the IRS that are being assessed to US, personally, as officers of the corporation. What kind of trouble would I be looking at if I took this check and used the funds to pay down on these three items rather than sending the check to the company hired by the firm granted the receivership? They don't even know these funds exist. I have also been receiving phone calls and letters from a third party called "Professional Finders" who claim they have "found" an outstanding check of approximately $50,000 issued to our company and will, for a fee, recover the funds for us. Should I turn this information over as well, or ignore it?
