I'm so sorry that this happened to you. Sadly its not uncommon. My husband is a fishing guide and we have had several people from out of town come fishing with us and write us a check. Then they go home and put a stop payment on it. They can do that even if we have already deposited the check. We don't find out for a week or two when the bank sends us notification in the mail. I'd love for someone to call me! Its happened to us so many time our policy now is if you are writing a check you have to send it before your trip....no funny business! I did speak to a lawyer about it and theres not much worth doing unless the amount is over $1000 and the you can go for grand larsony (i think thats what its called) No matter what NO CAKE FOR HER!
