    NSF Check -- need help Illinois

    Hi...8 months back i gave a check for $2000 to my friend which i owe to him.He depoisted the check in July and it was reject because of in sufficient funds. Later i paid him $2k cash in Oct.Now he is saying that if i don't give another $1000, he is gonna put a case on me.The check was dated on 06/10/2009.It's been almost 8 months.How can i defend in the court

    It means a case can still be filed against you - time limit has not elapsed. You might have a hard time defending yourself if he takes you to court if you have no proof of payment.

    This is the SOL on NSF checks Il.

    Non Sufficient Funds (NSF or Payment of Negotiable Instruments) checks: 3 years of the dishonor of the draft or 10 years after the date of the draft, whichever expired first: 810 ILCS 5/3-118

    when i am paying cash one more roommate was with us.but now he is not here.last month only he went to other country.i didn't draw 1500 at a time.

    what are the consequences that i have to face if he files a police complaint on that NSF check.
    can he file a case after 6 months also? is it valid?

    Hope you have a bank statement showing a withdrawal for that amount, right around the time you say you paid them. Tough lesson to learn, but pay by check or get a receipt. Always.

    Are you saying you got no receipt for the cash (seems so). Were there any witnesses that saw you pay him back or know that you paid him back. Did you withdraw all the money at once from a bank account or any kind of proof at all. It might end up being his word against yours.

    The possible related thread starts with OP loaning his friend $3,000 & this current thread OP owes his friend money. It seems there has been a problem with the checks.

    krish, could you give us a little better explanation as to exactly what transpired & who owes who what. Also, as GotSmart asked, do you have proof that you paid your friend $2,000 in cash?

    Thanks.

    If it is related this is a math question, not a legal one.

    Do you have any proof you paid him?

    Is this related to the check dated 6/6/09 for $3,000?
