Ask The Get Out of Debt Experts

Someone Gave Me a Check and I Lost It. – Bethann


“Dear Steve,

When a check is lost and you ask the agency to replace it, can they say no? Is there a certain amount of time that goes by where they can say no.. the monies were donations


Dear Bethann,

I can’t think of any reason why they would have to replace it if they did not want to. The original check was a donation and not a payments for goods or a service. Maybe they have now changed their mind or can no longer afford to give.

If they wanted to reissue the check they could charge you for the cost of putting a stop payment on the last one and reissue it.

It seems to me that for whatever reason, they changed their mind.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
