Customer Question

I wrote 2 checks to my roommate for my share of the rent, each check was $625.00. Both checks bounced. He is asking for me to pay him again which I am willing to do and will do so with a Cashier's Check. My question is if I make retribution to him can he still file a police report and have me arrested? State is Florida

It is very rare for "bad check" cases to actually result in criminal prosecution.
