Just write a check to the trustee, unless you "accidentally" blew the money. Then you need to see an attorney.

Take the money out of the bank account and purchase a money order or cashiers check to send to the trustee. This happens fairly frequently. If the money has been spent, communicate with the trustee about making a prompt payment arrangement.

    1. Contact the Trustee (or better yet, your lawyer if you have one) 2. If the money is still in the bank, turn it into a money order or bank check payable to the trustee (with your case number on it on the memo line), and send it to him or her, along with a copy of the paper showing that this amount was the size of the refund.

    All the Trustee wants are the funds. Tell your lawyer what you've done and he or she will work it out with the Trustee.
