Someone used my rebate check at a local home improvement store. I believe they must have gotten it in their mailbox (person lives further down the block from me). They used it along with their own rebates and made a purchase at the local home improvement store. The store has the transactions and video of the person.
Regardless of the check being delivered to his address by mistake, he still used it. I should let you know the check was only $7.21. I am going to pursue charges once the officer completes the investigation.
It's a crime, obviously, albeit a petty one. It is also "conversion" which would allow you to sue the person for triple damages. Problem is the filing fee is more that the money you'd get back.
