This is in reference to a bounced check I wrote and owed the 37.50 for . I recently paid the collection agency the debt and they have cashed the check. I then got a call from a supposed lawer wanting me to send them 135.50 because the case had been turned over to them. Can they take me to court over that amount? Even if I have already paid the collection agency?

Re: check collection
Sounds like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Let the lawyer know that you've settled the matter with the collection agency, and that they'd cashed your check in settlement.
