My question involves personal finance in the State of: arkansas
My boyfriend let his ex-wife talk him into giving her a blank, signed check to give to the bail bonds place to get her boyfriend out of jail. She said father was supposed to wire her money in the morning and she promised to deposit it in my boyfriend's account to cover the check. Of course, she didn't. Her father actually did wire her the money, and she picked it up from western union. This has been a couple days ago. Still no money has been given to my boyfriend or placed in his bank account. The check he wrote the bonds company still hasnt cleared. He is planning to go to his bank in the morning and put a stop payment order on this check.
My questions are: 1) will the bonds company be able to go after him for a hot check criminally?
2) will the bonds company be able to go after him civilly?
3) since she is the one who actually presented the check to the bonds company (my boyfriend was not present), will they go after her instead?
