My only original point is that some retailer who get a bad checks can report to police without first contacting the check issuer to give him a chance
to coorect. Then you tell me my logic has a problem but now you say "I never said such a situation doesn't exist".
You win!!! You were right and I was wrong. The retailer can call the police and have 50 people who wrote bad checks during that week arrested... What was I thinking, I should have known that in this country, people are NOT given the opportunity to remedy the situation, because police are called the minute someone passes a bad check, without being given the opportunity to remedy the issue. What was I thinking? I should have known that all people who write bad check are criminals, and this is the laws in the US... Lastly, fruit farmers across the corners now accepts checks without state ID, where have I been? Oh... I know, have never been to a farmer's market in 10 years, whole foods is my primary source of vegetation, plus they required ID to match your check book, which I never use cause I prefer credit card transaction while showing my ID... Please accept my apologies for insulting the logic in your arguments, come to think of it, my logic is whack dude...
