Likely to be one of the craigslist scammers who sent her the check. Usually they look pretty legit, but obviously once the numbers are ran or checked, no account exists. Hopefully if that was the case, she didn't send anything to said person or sell anything to said person like a car.... Story is lacking information badly. It paints her to be a criminal already when the above could have easily happened. Fail

Banks make big mistakes also. I wrote a friend a check and her bank sent it through with the wrong account number 3 times. After the first time my bank sent them a letter telling them they put the wrong numbers on the account and they sent it through the same way twice more. I finnaly told her to rip it up and gave her cash. That was the only person who ever had trouble cashing one of my checks. Mainly because GLB woold'nt listen.
