My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
My current landlord saved and cashed nine checks for my rent last year on a specific date. This year a little over six months later they did this again on a specific date only this time they cashed the new checks and the old checks for the second time. Let me repeat, they cashed the same checks that they had cashed a little over six months before. They did this by having a bank from your PC banking account. Because they waited six months to do this my bank did not catch the error even though the checks have double runs of numbers on the back from being processed twice. So my question is now that they have stolen a large sum of money from my account and their check-cashing scanner is treated as a paper check, what are my legal rights if someone deposits the same check twice?
