Company Loses Payment Checks, Is The Clients Still Liable

If you make a payment to a business and due to it's negligence or error the business loses your payment are you liable for payment?

Scenario:

A vehicle is purchased and the buyers pay the seller a 1500.00 down payment. The seller contacts the buyer and states that they have lost the check for payment and would like another check.

The buyer states that will not pay and the seller threatens to send the account to collections if it is not paid.

Is the client still liable even though they paid as agreed?
