Lost the check I would like another one
« on: May 17, 2019, 02:22:41 PM »
Hey all,
I am going to make a long story short.
I bought a car from a older gentleman earlier this week.
I paid for the car with cashiers check.
Well I got a phone call saying " I lost your check can I have another one"
I am kinda lost on what to do.
Let me know what you guys think.
I need to call him back with a answer.

You can go to your bank or where ever you got your cashiers check, show the receipt, have it canceled and a new one issued. Just my 2 cents :-) Depending on your bank or where ever you got it from, it may take a day or two for your money to be back in your account.

I agree, I would check with the bank that issued it. Then, make sure that it is cancelled before you replace it.

First thing is to contact the bank and see if it's been cashed.  Stop payment immediately as each day that goes by someone could go and cash it.  Once the bank confirms they won't pay the first check, tell them to issue a new one.

This has been a real screwball experience.
I called him up and got his wife on the phone. Turns out the reason he can't find the check is because they already cashed it in.
She told me they went and cashed it right after I left. I told her thank you for letting me know and hung up. I think he tried to con me or something but the mystery of the missing check has been solved.

You say it was an older gentleman.  Maybe he’s got memory issues
