I like this. Call him, and tell him that if he doesn't pay, he may find, over an extended time, oil pan plug, trans pan plugs, may decided to go on vacation.

i agree cash is king, and the check is not a fake per say. it is actually his account and there is money in it, i just dont know how much, his bank verified that it is actually his account but not enough money in the account to cover the check. thats all they tell me.

IIRC correctly, something like this happened to a guy over on pirate.. They were in Idaho or something. At the end of the day, somebody ended up with feces through their sun roof.

Even postal money orders have been scammed........Cash,period.

Having said that,don't waste your time. Go the legal route in small claims court.
Have him answer to the judge and waste HIS time explaining himself. Assuming you have documentation to back up your story.

he has to go to work sometime, right?
I have found nothing makes people pay up quicker than showing up at their workplace, sooner or later if he works, he should get paid

I didn't read through all of the replies but I think you can call the S.O.S. and they can "flag" the title so he cannot get a new one issued in his name.
Don't ask me how I know but a detective with the KPS told me this once not too long ago.
I would be at my local SOS office waiting at their door when they opened in the A.M.
If they blow you off I'd be on the phone with the local sheriffs office while in the lobby.
Good luck. Sucks I know.
