Did the check simply bounce for insufficient funds, or was the check a forgery of some kind? Did your son refund money to the fellow who gave him the check? I will need more details, and can offer direct phone contact for later today.
If the check is not good, then your son owes that money back to the bank. It is a civil matter, not criminal, as long as he had no knowledge of the fact that it was a bad check. He will have to make arrangements with the bank to repay the money As soon as possible. I hope it is not too much for him to handle. As soon as the money is paid back to the bank that should be the end of it. I wish him the best of luck, and thanks for using JUST ANSWER.
Absolutely. But might have an attorney send the man a demand to make the check good first. that is always a first step before a criminal charge can be filed. I hope this answer will result in a positive rating at this point. THanks for using JUST ANSWER.
No we are not permitted to perform legal services for our customers. I'm sure you can find a local attorney to write a statutory letter demanding payment of a dishonored check. The fee will probably be in the $100-$200 range.
