Atlanta, GA asked in Banking and Small Claims for Tennessee

Q: Post dated a check for 01OCT lender cashed 16SEP resulted in hardship

I called them to complain about this error and get the money back because they had left 3$ in my bank acc and they said 7 days to get a check... okay whatever 10 days later I called turns out they processed the check. I read TN penal codes and nothing discusses this issue only what the check cashed can do for a bad check is this illegal?

A: No.. You gave them a check, and they cashed it at their leisure. This happens all the time, and the payee is not breaking a law by negotiating the paper early. You could try to sue the payee for breach of contract, but it is not advisable.
