He is lying.
You cannot believe anything you are told by a scammer.
The Statute of Limitations to collect on a bounced check is 5 years in Kansas. Here is the statute:
The Statute of Limitations to collect an unpaid debt is 3 years in Kansas.
Additionally, a bounced check is not a criminal offense in Kansas - it is a civil offense. This means you cannot go to jail for a bounced check.
Lastly, what they are doing is against the law.
