A moral dilemma...what to do, what to do...
Fate is tempting me in a monetary way. Over the past 3 weeks we've received 2 checks in the mail that don't belong to us. One is some type of refund check for $477.63 for the guy that used to own our house and the other is someones paycheck for about $354.00 that was mailed to our address for some reason.
I know I would be taking a risk, but **** at the food and supps I could buy with that money. I was thinking about giving the people time to call and complain that they never received the checks, get new ones, and then I could take the old ones to a check cashing place and let them have 10%...Thoughts?

have you ever heard of karma return the things or tear them up man nothing but truouble can come of this

not worth the risk in my opinion..

Have you ever heard of check deception and theft? That is a terrible idea..Nevermind you are keeping someones hard earned money from them, but you are flat out stealing..You'll get caught one way or another..Either on tape, or if you have to show identification, which you probably will to out and out cash the check..It's not worth all of the potential problems, having a possible felony conviction, and just doing the wrong thing..I'd rethink your idea..

Pennies when considering the world of crap you can get into. I hope you are just kidding or bored. I sure hope you don't decide to open a lab one day as your stuff will surely be under dosed

You know what to do because you posted this thread, you know it's wrong and it has consequences. Follow your conscience.

I have more and more started to belive in karma, ive done alot of **** in my youth and belive i get it back now.
I would send them to the right owner, it will make you feel good too.

You know wat bro.....The amount on those checks are not worth it...if u'r willing to take a risk go for the millions so atleast it would be worth it...$831.63 is definitely not worth the risk plus it is tracable and the courts will not have a hard time convicting you beyond a reasonable doubt since there was intent plus a corrupt moral.....If I were u Id pull an "Ocean's Eleven" if u'r in dire need of cash......my .02 cents....

You get caught with check fraud and youre not going to minimum security resort prison, no no. Youre going to federal pound me in the @ss prison.

Why is this such a hard decision for you?
The money is not yours.
09-15-2004, 01:13 AM #18
Exactly what EVERYONE ELSE has said......... The money IS NOT yours, and for what little amount you are willing to basically steal is not worth the return you are GOING ti get in the future. You MAY NOT get caught, but it will catch up with you one way or another. IMO, BAD IDEA.

Follow the golden rule... Do onto other as you would have them do unto you.

Ok, ok...I guess I really already knew the answer to this. But just some thoughts.
1. I didn't consider it stealing because I was going to hold on to them long enough for the respective parties to get replacements.
2. I can't send them to the owners because I don't know the owners. They were both mailed to my house for whatever reason. Computer error, old data, or what have you.
3. Individually, neither check is a felony, only together I believe.
Anyway, no biggie. If I had the balls or the intent to cash them they wouldn't be laying around collecting dust. Thanks for the guidance my guys and gals.

#2 Either way Felony or Misdemeanor, It is like I have heard, never ever do anything that you would not want to be printed on the front page of your home town newspaper.

its a felony, bc youd have to sign it, which becomes fraud.... as for that, most check cashin places have tape.. so i doubt youd get away with it, plus its stealing, be anything in life u want cept a thief, those ppl are garbage
