Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

The check company would prefer that you not go to jail because that would prevent you from working and paying back the money that you owe. So, in all likelihood, they are interested in working with you to have you pay the debt, and not to place you in jail where you cannot work and earn money.
