Reading the rest of the story, it seems that the York County District Attorney has made some kind of arrangement with a debt collection company to force check kiters into some sort of liberal indoctrination class and to also jointly make a profit off them to boot.

Seems kinda shady to me. Comments?

Checks ?!? People still write checks?

I'm only half joking, I haven't written a check since sometime in 2002. I pay everything online or with my debit card. I never even bothered to get any checks made when I moved and opened a new account, I still have the "counter checks" they gave me when I opened the account.

“Seems kinda shady to me. Comments?”

Kind of like the DUI school run by the brother-in-law of the Judge?

Teaching the history of the United States and mathematics in tax payer funded schools would help to reduce the number of bad check writers

If these same schools stopped teaching the false idea that right and wrong are arbitrary concepts it would have even a greater impact.

Maybe shady, maybe not.

I have owned retail businesses in the past, and you always get some bad checks, just like you always get some shoplifting.

The $165 cost for the course is not excessive. If the guy complaining is prosecuted for his bad check it is going to cost him at least twice that, unemployed or not.

If he had simply gone to the dentist he wrote the bad check to and paid him, the whole issue would never have arisen. In fact if he explained his unemployment situation, the dentist may have waived the charge.

My experience has been that I could collect on 60-75% of the bad checks I got by sending a letter to the writer. The rest were all in the $20-25 range and it just wasn’t worth the energy to go after them.

I have little sympathy for those who think they have some kind of special privilege to kite checks because they are unemployed.

I agree. How about this. The check will be paid in full in 10 days, or you will begin a jail term.

Hello I am the guy who’s face was splattered over the Sunday front page of the York Daily record as a whining check bouncer when I brought these facts to the paper to investigate.

The previous incarnation of this company was sued in PA for 2.5 million to pay back people defrauded of money like ME, declared bankruptcy, and reformed using the same offices, phone numbers, paperwork, threatening letters, tactics, and Connections with DA’s and prosecutors NATIONWIDE, to continue this Liberal agenda indoctrination program.

They had us take personality tests asking if we get mad if someone drives to slow? To determine if we were type A personalities... an old lady that bounced a check for 12.00 will be eating beans for a month after being SCARED into paying $200.00 for this MANDATORY class to avoid prosecution. The Newspaper literally REMOVED all of the relevant facts from the story to make me look like an a-hole

Read these links, this sh*t is criminal in a way only the Obamanation Administration could allow.
