    I recieved a $40 rebate check in March. I had it on the counter and it disappeared. Turns out my 4 years old daughter had it in her room, on her art table. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    The front of the check is completely fine - no marks. The back has pen scribble marks all over it, including in the do nor write below this line area. I still have a spot up top where I can fit in my signature and not be in the middle of the scribbles.

    Do you guys think the check is still good? If not, it's $40 wasted as the rebate company will not issue another.

    Take it to your bank and tell them what happened.

    Don't ask me how it's done but why not WASH the check like the crooks do when they steel checks and then make them for more? Just a random thought. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I bet you can. The proof operators often tape over blemishes for processing. Just let them do it.

    Use a cotton swab soaked with rubbing alcohol. Moisten the paper and gently rub it. Try on a test piece of paper first of course. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'd just take it to the bank, sign it in front of the cashier and not say a thing. They may not even ask you about it, if they do explain about the kid scribbles. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The lady at the bank said it happens all the time, usually front and back, so mine wasn't bad at all. No problem cashing it. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
