Yes, you are legally obligated to repay the check. I personally make it a practice if I have any doubts about the person or the check to call the issuing bank. They can tell you if it is safe to deposit the check in your account. The police in your town will probably allow you to file bad check...View More

i am trying to get information as a POA from an account set up by a prior POA for my grandmother. They are asking for all of my personal information to access her account stating "Banking laws require" it sounds odd since my information has nothing to do with her account.
Personally, I agree with you that all of that information about YOU, the attorney in fact, should not be required. Some of it, maybe, but not all of it. HOWEVER, the sad fact is what the bankers are telling you is correct. They have to satisfy government regulatory requirements that mandate that...View More

I heard that payday loans are illegal in NJ. I took 600 put and paid four payments of $206 . I also heard that since they are illegal I only have to pay the principal. Is this true,? The rest of my cc and such ate in good standing so I don't want to file for bankruptsy. What can they do to me,,?
Think this all the way through: If the payday loan creditor operates its business anywhere in the state of New Jersey there is a really strong possibility that payday loans are NOT illegal in New Jersey. What can they do if you do not repay? They can sue you.
