Got it resolved! He came through. :) He said he was waiting for his checks to be deposited before he would call and was sorry about the mistake. Glad all is well.

If the guy really wants this check paid, he would be trying to get hold of [u]you[/u], to explain why his check was not honored when it was presented for payment! Your state's laws may differ, but before any District Attorney would take a criminal charge of 'Theft by Check' here in Texas, you would have had to have sent the DRAWER of the check a demand letter asking that the check be paid in TEN DAYS! If no payment is made after TEN DAYS in Texas, it is presumed that the DRAWER intended to steal the goods by use of a bad check! The ball is in your buyer's court right now! There is no way HE doesn't know his check failed to clear! Eric The(Hang'EmHigh)Hun[>]:)]

Called and got the machine. I left a message asking a call back. "I would be in the area and didnt want to carry all my stuff, could he help."

i wrote a check once for $3600 that bounced higher than anna nicoles ass on a trampoline. seems the bank wanted to hold a $10,000 deposit for two fucking weeks without telling me. you know what else they forgot to tell me? that my check bounced. so i continued to write more checks and use the hell out of my debit card all the while thinking that i was on the black. when my debit card stoped being accepted after i had overdrawn my account by over $4000!!! i called the bank myself to enquire. they explained the situation (even though it was about two weeks after the fact) and i immediately called the business that i had bounced the check to. they didnt have my current phone number and had been freaking out thinking i ran off with the cash. MORAL OF THE STORY: banks today, especially huge national banks arent what they used to be. keep trying to reach they guy and don't immediately think he's a thief especially if hea has been a good customer before. oh and dont accept COD's... or at the very least dont accept company checks use cashiers checks or money orders.

Morgan, Doo exactly as ETH suggested, send it by certified mail and see what happens.

It might be time to publisize what state he's in. If it's Oregon, I'd be glad to pay him a visit...

here in illinois you can deposit the check twice, after it comes back from your bank with do not redeposit you can go to your bank and ask them to put it up for collection. they will send it to the issue bank and there is a freeze on check writers funds till there is enough money to cover the bad check. this also screws up his account so if he has a ten dollar check go thru it will be bounced back even though he has the money in his account. its a hassle but you get first priority on his balance. there is usually a fee from your bank for this though. after that go to the cops and he will have to post bail in the amount of the bad check. i have done this a few times over the years. not sure if law is same in your state

Customer bounced a check to me a few months back. I followed protocol per the District Attorneys office. You may want to do the same. It is an awesome system if you do it right. First you have to make attempt of contact via phone. Second you have to send a CERTIFIED letter for demand of payment. If you have not received a response... send EVERYTHING to the DA's office and THEN the "Fit will hit the Shan" Fines, Check writing class(embarassing) it is all good for you and they will NEVER write another bad check again. Or so you hope. I would check your DA's office to see if they have such a program. If they do...GREAT.

Mind you that you attempt to warn them twice and THEIR BANK warns them too. They get a notice
