why did your friend have your checks? was your signature forged? or you issued them in blank?

on its face, yes, you can be charged for bouncing checks. your defense can be that they were issued to them without consideration for their value.

as for estafa, you can not stop them from filing a criminal case against you, but you have a good defense that you were not who gave them the checks.

thank you... I gave her my blank checks with my signature (!stupid if you think about it but its a long story why i did that)... needless to say, my friend was able to fund checks at first. Can I file a complaint against her for misrepresenting me and for using the checks for purposes other than the reason we agreed on. She used these checks as 'collateral' and issued them to loan sharks whom I have not met nor talked to.

letta, even if it's a long story, you have to explain why you gave your friend the checks and why they were blank. this will be the basis of your defense. good luck
