Why you closed the account really doesn't matter, and that seems to be the bulk of your question. Apparently, you wrote a $400 check before you closed the account. Who is calling you? Is it TCF or the person you wrote the check to? It may make a difference. From your question, it appears that it is the person you wrote the to check because you state that it was for a "bad check" and "on an account that was closed." I doubt if TCF would honor the check if you closed the account. Why would you assume that it was paid? Obviously, you did not keep track of your account. That is you responsibility. The statute of limitations is probably 6 years, so maybe you have a defense. Without more info it is hard to determine.
