What can I do if a check for an online sale bounced? 2 Answers as of January 12, 2011

I placed an item for sale online. A man wanted to purchase the item. He sent me a check for $2000.00 when I was only asking for $300. I have a series of emails between he and I. I deposited the money into my wifes bank account only to find the check bounced and not a word from him. What can I do to rectify this?

You can file a claim in small claims court. This is a common tactic.

Contact your local police department and provide them with the information of the person that passed you the bad check.
