Q: $2,045.34 in rent paid by my debit card. Only had $1,820.28 available-Leaving a deficit of $225.06. Is this criminal?
It was due to be paid by midnight on 03/05/2019-after only being given 10 days notice by the leasing office that they made a major error and I actually would have to pay 2 months rent by that date instead of just 1 month. On 03/05/2019 at 3:17pm, I called the asst manager and she agreed to allow me to pay all accept $220-$235.00, which would have to be paid by 03/08/2019. When I was able to go to the online portal at 11:40pm to pay, I saw that she didn’t adjust it in the system, and partial payments are not allowed-which forced me to have to make the full payment due, although my bank account was short of the full payment amount by $225.06. The payment went through, I received a confirmation number via email and my bank account is now negative by $225.06. As a person who takes pride in having a completely incident free background and record, I am panicking that I will catch a criminal transaction charge, when this was a situation I had handled-or so I thought. Please someone help me.
