guitar center refunded me 359 bucks for a amp that died on me.

so i got the check in the mail the other day, and i was happy.

and today i checked the mail and there was another one. different check numbers and totally as legit as the first one. for 359 bucks as well.

should i use them both?

of course not at the same time, that would be a bit obvious.

but is it worth it? or is it even possible to get caught since i technically didnt do anything wrong?

I definitely think you should do it, one now, then another one in a few days, and act like you forgot about the first one if they catch you, which they probably wont.

However, it is actually illegal. Cashing both checks is illegal because it's your responsibility to know as well as theirs how much money they owe you. They can demand their money back, so don't be surprised.

EDIT: Guitar center doesn't know what morals are. They offered me $50 for a PA head, while I could see plainly in the same room we were talking, an identical used one (in worse condition) selling for $250. They deserve it.

But don't cash it. Guitar center could probably hire any lawyer to sue the pants off of you in which case you would lose more money than $359.

if your gonna cash it cash it fast cause they cant legally do anything once its cashed in
#18
Guess they shaked their moneymakers too long that one time.

And who's mral enough to tell one he'S immoral eh, do what you feel like doing, best choosing after a good drunken night, then the day after you don't remember half of what you done that week, when you'll see a pile of money waiting for your judging I think I know what will happen.

#24
Hmm angel on one shoulder screaming nooo nooo don't cash it. Then there's a devil on the other saying yessss yesss. But don't do it cause they WILL notice the 300 and something dollars missing.

I don't get it. These are bank cheques? Not vouchers for money off at the store? Put them both in the bank. It's not your fault if they accidentally sent you money.

It's not fraud. It's an error on their part, but I don't see how the threadstarter is under any obligation to correct them.

Don't cash the other one. Technically you're not really losing any money anyway. You'll just have what a started with.

That's how things are here in the good ole USA. It isn't fraud, but it is illegal. They'll get his ass if he uses the other one.

Ever hear about the woman who's bank account had £100k accidentally deposited in it?
She spent it all. She got caught. The baliffs came round and she got sent down.

It is a mistake on their part but you should return it.

There is the risk of getting caught. Return one and don't be a dick.


Yup, they have accountants, accounts receivables and accounts payable constantly going over what they have spent and been paid. Sent it back.

Who's gonna get hurt if you do it? Its a lucky break, if you cant get caught if they're different cheque numbers

But they were mailed to the same address. That'd be pretty suspicious.
#37
Return one. If you cash them both, not only will they demand their money back, you'll also likely receive a hefty fine. Then you might as well have gotten no money at all, and you'll still have a dead amp.
#38
As long as they're both addressed to you, they're yours. It's legal. I remember a thread in GG&A where a dude recieved an amp from Musician's Friend, completely out of the blue. After discussion, it was decided that it was his.

You might want to ask a lawyer, just in case.
