My question involves criminal law for the state of: Iowa
I'm a owner of a home based travel agency in Des Moines Iowa
A month ago a guy called from Boston he wants to purchase a airline ticket to Bosnia, I told him that I will call him back with the price.
So I did, he agreed to purchase the ticket but if is fine he is gonna pay with his check, fine with me, he is not the first one to pay with check.
So I received the check and deposit it to my bank account, money is there.
Five,six days later he calls me back he has to change his departure date, I tell him I have to check with the airlines to see how much the penalty fee is for changing the date.
I call him back and tell him that the airlines requires $350 for penalty fee, he told that he will think about it.
Guess what?! Few days later I get copy from my bank he stopped the check!
I grabbed my phone and started calling him, his son answers the phone. His son started having attitude at me and finding some stupid excuse why they stopped the check.
I told the son that if they don't mail me the new check I will call my attorney. Few days later he emailed me that he will mail me the check. I have not heard of him since.
What would you do guys? This is first time happened to me in 15 years.
Thanks in advance!
