Quoted from Joker2415:
That's too long! I don't care if the buyer was a PINTA! Doesn't matter!
Also, I've never heard of ...A stop payment on a check is only good for 90 days? What good would that be? No...There has to be a way to Void it, cancel, etc...I have no experience with that lately so who knows maybe it is true now.
I'm not looking to take sides here... but you can also have the check re-issued with the same check number so that only one check will ever go through.
My payroll dept does this all the time when employees (who for some reason don't have direct deposit) can't find their payroll check. Just reissue check under the same number.
