Just got offered a new gig that I really want. Everything is contingent on the background check. I've never had a felony or ever been in any trouble. While in college my check book was stolen and a bunch of checks were written for dumb shit like pizza delivery etc. My bank took care of me and I figured I was good. Fast forward 15 years I get offered a gig with AT&T and they find a bounced check issue on court records in NC. I call up there to find out there was 1 check left out there for $18 and the company filed a claim. So I figured $18 is not worth me traveling 6hrs to handle when I could just pay it over the phone and be done. Well I didn't know paying for it was.essentially admitting guilt. This happened roughly 7 years ago. Should I be worried?
