Secondly, I learned that what I thought was a fake cheque was legally a real cheque. A little-known change in the 1990 Uniform Commercial Code made it so that the words “non-negotiable” printed on a cheque do not invalidate it.

Skimmed it a little but it says it was teller error more than anything. Also if that picture at the top is the cheque this happened 18 years ago

He gave them three weeks and repeatedly tried to confirm whether he could keep the money. More likely a computer error imo.

Oh yeah he gave them more than enough time, fairs fair. I just think this would only work once in a lifetime as so many people at the bank would have to screw up at once, like the stars aligning or some shit.

pretty sure from MY quick skim that i confirmed its the same story that IS actually fairly old, but the best bit seems to have been missed by the others commenting, about where they (the bank) actually stole the money back from him (at the end of the story)!

and if the same story for those not fully reading he ended up with the support of a professor who wrote THE main textbook about cheques (apparently was initially going to ignore him like all the other crazies who try to contact him with similar stuff, but he actually noticed it was all legit and supported the guy). Made it onto good morning america or seomthing like that as well i believe

Something fishy about this story, if the legal system could not tell it was fake how could anyone???!!(since it was in fact real)
