A: I need to stop payment on a check that I wrote.
B: Do you have a copy of the check you wrote?
A: Yes, I was able to get a digital copy online.
B: Why are you stopping payment on this check?

B: We can only stop payment if the check hasn't been cashed already.
A: Is there a fee to stop payment?
B: Yes, there is a $10 fee.
A: That's better than paying my rent twice.
B: I suppose it is.
