This is attorney Bill offering assistance.
To get a better idea on your question, which State are you in ?
Was the money deposited illegally and was the bank contacted ?
Who took the money ?
In relation to demanding money, this may be illegal if there is an element of blackmail ?
Who is demanding the $292 and why ?
Have you contacted the bank and what was their response in relation to the payment ?
There is a genuine payment dispute. The store is entitled to contact the bank in relation to the payment.
This would be a small claims case if the store persists and the payment was never made.
As long as you had accounts in your bank and didn't represent a check without funds there is no criminal offense otherwise representing a bad check is a criminal offense.
If it is the bank's fault and not yours, you may be able to sue the bank in civil court for their negligence.
This is really how it stands.
Please follow up when needed.

Isnt check place liable. They cashed check without any proper id of the person it was made out to.
Without checking for an ID may make that person/store/institution personally liable for the full amount of the check, it would be more of a civil offense than criminal and the way to pursue it would be to sue them in civil court for the loss.
