Ever since the financial crisis, there has been an increase in the number of consumers switching from banks to credit unions. I’m selling my 1986 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am runs good, and received to checks Keystone Financial for $6,500.00 and another from Citizens Bank for $4,850.00 both I assume fruad. Rick, you are not only correct but I also believe it is illegal to knowingly deposit a bad check and, even if you deposit one in good faith, once the bank notifies you that the check has been returned you are obligated to return the funds.
You were very lucky that the bank put a hold on the check otherwise you would now owe the bank $4,700 for the bad check. My credit union has a notice posted at each teller window warning people not to deposit checks from people they do not know. I also have to cash it to pay fee’s and so on. I noticed the check does have water marks and I did check the internet… The bank is PARKVALE BANK Located in Brownsville and can be found on the internet.
I do plan to take it to my bank and let them see it. I hope it will help them keep others in my area from being affected by these jerks. If you depositied the check in good faith AND responded the the bank’s letter by making arrangements with the bank to repay the money I don’t know why there would be an arrest warrent. True, you are the victim of the scammers, but when you opened your bank account you had to sign a card or document listing the account rules, among which was an agreement to repay the bank for any returned checks that you deposited. I hope you are able to work this out with your bank or law enforcement without further trouble.

The City of Halifax (1841-1996) was the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, and the largest city in Atlantic Canada.1 Halifax was also the shire town of Halifax County. Made our phone calls as per letter waiting for them to request money or a credit card number.
I called the number on the letter and spoke to the man that was stated on the letter; he wasn’t concerned that I was calling instead of my husband but was more concerned that I get the check to the bank as fast as possible, thats when I started looking you up on the internet…Thanks Again. I ended up just taking the check to a local bank that I am not affiliated with and they said they would send it to their hub for reporting.
