Unusual, but if it was a joint account, someone would have had to pay it back. I don't think the bank could return the check as a legit cashiers check is should be debited from the account when it was drawn.Originally Posted by JoelHene
Sounds like the bank f'ed up and issued 2 checks and took a shot at getting it back by returning it. I don't think they could return it legally but the joint couple would have an overdraft to the bank for the 2nd check anyway.
Also be sure it is a cashiers check because banks a lot of times issue a "Bank Check". Looks like a cashiers check but isn't the same thing.
Not saying it didn't happen..but if it would have been issued to a 3rd party there'd be a lawsuit
