Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Basically my flatmate went back to her country and she asked me to open her letters and deal with her matters. She got a cheque and because she doesn't have a UK bank account I took it to a cheque cashing place and wanted to send her money by paypal. Now I'm scared I might have committed a crime, and would like to reverse it and get the cheque back so I can send it to her. Alternatively if I just send her the money by paypal is that ok?
The company? Yes they took around 10%
so if I send her the full amount the cheque was made out to, and cover the 10% cut myself (I'm willing to do that to be on a safe side because her agreement was only verbal so she could argue she never wanted me to do that), you say it's unlikely I will be prosecuted? can the inland revenue who issued the cheque investigate?
sorry I don't understand the last bit that the law is the law even for the revenue, can you clarify what you mean please?
So, legally, is it better for me to try to get the cheque back from the cashing place (will they even do that?), or just straightaway send the money to my ex flatmate?
