    Default Extortion

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Fl My homeowners association sent a board member to my house asking for me to pay my dues and I told him I would pay within 14 days. I sent in a check for the $660 dollars plus a $5 donation for a total of $665 and wrote donation in the memo. I have never made a donation in 10 years. The hoa called me asking me to sign a paper saying that my check was a donation and they could use it however they wished. I refused to sigh and sent a email saying I paid what you asked asked for as well as a $5 donation. A month later their attorney sends certified letters saying we still owe $660 and this is a month after they cashed my check. They very well know they are trying to make me pay twice. Is this a crime?

    No, it's carelessness on your part and obnoxiousness on theirs. Next time you want to make not of a $5 donation, make sure your note is clear that it's only a $5 donation.

    In the meantime, send them back a letter reminding them that they already know your donation was only $5, and that the $660 balance was paid in full.

    Or, say that you refuse to donate anything and to apply the $5 to your next bill.
