Honestly, I would call your bank and see what they think.  Part of me thinks I’d go ahead and stop the payment, but I am not sure any legalities that go along with that.

So are you saying the bank hasn’t made a payment yet? 

Is the check clearly made out for $53.00 but not written to anyone in particular?

You don’t need to worry about who cashes the check, as long as you clearly wrote $53 on it there shouldn’t be anyone taking more out of your account.  I would possibly go there with cash in hand and stop payment on the check.  Most likely she wouldn’t come after you for $50 but I wouldn’t want to risk it.

As long as the check is clearly written out for $53.00 that is the most anyone should be able to get.  Maybe since the phone is disconnected maybe the doors are locked up too?  If this is the case, I don’t think you have to worry about the check either.

I’d feel really strangely about someone having access to that info…account/routing number, address, and would just make sure nothing shady is going on.

Go with your gut. Call the bank and stop payment.

Some people are so slow cashing checks!  My husband wrote a check to a coworker and I finally had to take it back from him 3 months later because it was making me insane!  He had a whole stack in his wallet that he just never cashed because he didn’t open an account here yet!  Boys!

I would not risk it- I would not stop payment- if she is sketchy, it might cause you more problems.  If you wrote $53, she only gets $53.  Why make matters worse by risking more drama with this weirdo?  I think that risks more trouble.

It is definitely a werid situation and I think it will clear up.  It is just a major inconvenience to you to have to wait for her to cash it.  That is weird that she wouldn’t let you write in who the check goes to.  I bet it was just the heat of the moment, she probably made you feel flustered.

Anyway, the line blank- I say oh well.  The not cashing- crappy, but I think it will cash soon.  I just wouldn’t risk more complications if I were you.  Sorry for the trama!
