Hello, in college (about...

Hello, in college (about 5 years ago) I mistakenly bounced a check to publix and never took care of it as an irresponsible college student. However, I am looking to rectifying the situation now, but I cannot find any record of the bounced check. What is the best option to resolve?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I cannot find anything civil/criminal when looking up my records

You can contact the bank for records. You can contact the creditor and seek to work out a payment plan and settlement.

But I cannot find record of the bad checks anywhere. I have moved around several times since I wrote the checks thus do not have any correspondence through mail from them. I no longer have an account with the bank I used when I wrote the checks. Any place else I can look to see if I have a warrant? or outstanding civil complaint with publix?

If you dont have record of the check, creditor should have it, burden of proof falls on creditor.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
