i stopped payment on a check because one of the three items i purchased was faulty. i told her i would send her a ck for the remaining two items. instead she went to the state police and issued a complaint on me. they told me it was a case of theft because i kept the other 2 items when i returned the first one. are they correct? i wanted to pay for the 2 remaining. the cop told me to return the other 2 to her . what are my legal rights.
State/Country relating to question: Michigan
all i could.
Hello. My name is XXXX XXX I will be happy to answer your question.Unfortunately, the police is correct and if you kept merchandise and did not return all of the merchandise and also stopped payment on the check with which you paid for it, it would be considered a crime and depending on the amount of the check you can be charged with a felony.I would strongly suggest that you do consult and retain local criminal defense attorney to protect your legal rights and have this attorney present during any questioning / interrogations by the police or criminal case proceedings (if any) and hopefully your local criminal defense attorney will be able to get this unfortunate situation resolved for you.
i told her i would pay for the remaining 2 items. what should i do? the cop told me to return the other 2 items and she agreed to it. now how can i do this legally? what are my rights on the sale of a faulty rug when she knew it was so and did not disclose it to me. she had it rolled up in advance of my picking it up. she also put it into my car for me. wasnt it her responsibility to disclose the cut out piece of the rug. she rolled it up in the rest of the rug. i did not see it til i got home . called her immediately telling her it was damaged and i wanted my money back. did not hear from her so to protect myself i stopped payment for the ck. knowing i told her i would re-issue her a ck for the remaining 2 items. do i need a cop or anyone there when i return it to her tomorrow. what should she sign so she cannot say i did something to the other 2 pieces.
Thank you for youf follow up.What was the total amount of the check?What is the amount in dispute?
