WWYD?

DH had a golf tournament at his former employer a couple months ago.  He paid via check.  He no longer works there.  He gets a call today saying that they lost his check and need him to send a new check in.  LOST his check.  The amount of the check is $120 and has not been cashed yet, however, I am not comfortable just turning around another check for $120 not knowing where the check got lost or how it got lost or who may have the check.

WWYD?  One suggestion to me was to send a check and deduct the stop payment fee for the lost check.  I may go that route, but it's really frustrating that a company has irresponsible people handling money and lost a check.  And that they expect him to just say okay and pay them back.  I get it, it's owed money, but it's not like we're talking a $5 check here.

Re: WWYD?

  • I would definitely send them a new check minus the stop payment fee.  Maybe let them know in advance that's what you are doing, so they don't get things even more fouled up!
  • I don't know the details, but if a company can't eat that $120, they're in trouble. 

    But otherwise, yeah, send them a check minus the stop payment fee with an explanation.

  • Can he paypal the money? (Sorry, bad joke.)

    I guess I'd do what the others said, but I would not be happy about it!

    Ha ha, NOT that company.  ;)  And I am not happy about having to do a stop check!

    Dammit!  Then it was a really bad joke! 

    I'm, honestly, shocked that they would call a former employee, months later, asking for money that he already paid.  GRRR!

  • Honestly, I would tell them to get F'ing bent. You paid what you owed them. They can eat that check since they lost it.
