Many members of this forum have entrusted me to cash their Economic Impact Payments (Covid-19 stimulus checks). Two such members are @hmorris48 and @island cyclist. I mention these two as I've met the former, having given me delicious chili for cashing checks for them, and a nice tip on top of it all. The latter, I did not meet but know him through other forums. He got his cash in envelopes packed with junk mail to disguise it.

I will no longer be cashing checks for anyone, as I have learned my lesson.

Keturah Beverly — which goes by @Kei on this forum — found this site and also wanted assistance in cashing U.S. Treasury checks for both her tax return (presumably for her work overseas here in Japan at H.P. France) and her C19 Economic Impact Payment.

Her $1800 tax return seems to have gone through and was legitimate. On the other hand, her $1400 stimulus check turned out to be a bad check. She un/knowingly passed me a bad check, wherein I've already disbursed the funds to her, and will not give me back the money that she essentially has stolen from me at this point.

Instead, she forced me to stay up past my bedtime to contact agencies on her behalf to remedy the possible error. And in doing so, requested explicit information such as email addresses that she could contact.

BEWARE of doing any business with this woman unless you have something in writing and DO NOT trust her with money.

I know by posting this that I will probably not see my $1400 again. And, I am fine with that with how callous she has been towards me and my family during this time.

BEWARE OF:
KETURAH BEVERLY
ASAO KURIHIRA 2 CHOME 3-3-601
2150031 KAWASAKI KANAGAWA JAPAN

I have nothing to hide. Below is attached the bad check.

Keturah Beverly is not banned from this forum and can respond however she wishes; it will not be censored in any way. Though, I hope that she will do the right thing and just pay me back my money.

As she's in Mainland, Japan, I hope @thomas will allow me to crosspost this to his forum to warn other expats.

To the above defamatory comment.

David Walker has both slandered and committed libel against me. He has falsely accused me of committing a felony act, threatened me, called me heinous names numerous times in texts and in phone calls—which were sent at all hours of the night and, with this posting, has just broken several laws in Japan.

I have already contacted the police with regards to his actions, which I really didn’t want to do, as for his sake, this should remain a civil dispute and not become a become criminal case, as David is in the wrong with regards to Japanese law. However, with the above posting, I now have no other choice.

With regards to his defamatory comments, David was paid to cash the check on my behalf. His bank scanned the physical check in question, verified the validity of the check, put the balance into his bank account, and then one month later withdrew money from his account.

From this point—despite not having a single shred of proof that I have done something wrong—David has been been threatening me almost daily to the point of stalker behavior.

Despite his violent and abusive outbursts (in which his wife has to take the phone from him and apologize to me for his behavior), I have spent hours trying to sort this out by speaking on the phone with his bank—who admitted that they themselves could have made a mistake by cashing the check twice—to filing paperwork with the IRS for them to look into when, where and who cashed the check (assuming that someone other than David cashed the check).

What I want to make clear is that I have done nothing wrong. I have not endorsed a fraudulent check. I have not cashed the check or endorsed it over to anyone other than David Walker. His bank removed money from his account. I have stolen nothing.

We will not know why his bank returned a duplicate message on their system until the IRS finishes its investigation, as David’s bank will make no effort in trying to determine how they could have cashed a valid check that was supposedly previously cashed. If they think something criminal occurred, they have the authority to look into it but have chosen not to.

I also have encouraged David to contact the proper authorities on this matter as I am not in the wrong and have been completely transparent and cooperative.

Instead he chooses to post the above.

The problem that you fail to see here, @Kei, is that if you passed these bad checks off yourself at your own banking institution, the same thing would have occurred. Since it occurred to me, after giving you the funds, though, you are essentially a thief, holding my money hostage until you figure the situation out yourself.

As far as my "violent outbursts" go, who wouldn't get angry at someone for stealing $1400 from them and refusing to give back at least half until they recover their own money? I think that is a reasonable human emotion to feel, and express in such way after doing so much to figure it out for you after midnight while being accosted to not message you at nighttime either.

What I want to make clear is that I have done nothing wrong.
I will reiterate this and make it as clear as possible what you did wrong and why you owe me the money.
  1. You sent me a bad check.
  2. I cashed the check for you.
  3. I sent you the funds from that check.
  4. The check came back as duplicate/bad.
  5. My bank took funds from me while you already have the funds.
  6. You are holding the $1400 from me for whatever reason beyond point #5 which is theft on your part and nobody would agree with you otherwise.

tl'dr: You stole money from me and my family's mouth's amounting to more than $1000 in cash which is a felonious act. I should contact your place of work so they can keep an eye on you, just in case you're in charge of a register, or even worse, books.

I feel that this thread turned the pressure cooker on. As what only can only be taken as an admission of guilt, Keturah Beverly made an attempt to pay back the funds but has only sent half of the money owed, which is unacceptable at this point after all that she has put me through.

I will expand on the various tasks that I did each night to help her get her funds back to repay my stolen money if questioned about it.

On top of it all, and to add insult to injury, she sent it as "Goods and Services", which can be disputed by her months in the future, and I again would have funds stripped from me.

Thus, I issued her a full refund of this payment and will await $1400 to Friends and Family as I have done for her.

I did not send her funds this way. I sent them to Friends and Family to not only reduce the fees but also give her more protection than she is offering me (for those who have ever dealt with PayPal disputes before).

I got a notice from my domain name registrar that @Kei has gone on the offensive to try and take my website down because of releasing her private information, in what she attempts to claim as a form of blackmail.

However, this is thread is merely a reflection of the truthful events that took place and reveal both her and my private information as it is the only way to be transparent about the issue.

As the owner of this forum, I've still allowed her to reply here and will not censor her from making any additions, truthful or not as I have no problem replying to and debunking any lie or word spaghetti she throws out that makes her look any more favorable than she should.

I have nothing to hide. You can see right through her lies and come to the same logical conclusion that I am owed money by reading the attached letter from my bank. This is because, if she had deposited the money and someone else had stolen it before she could deposit it, her bank would claw the payment back too. I do not see why I am being held responsible for something that she can resolve herself.

With that being said, my funds still remain in her thieving hands as she awaits an investigation by the IRS into what happened to her funds.

She did make an attempt to repay me half of the funds while she waits, but I had to issue her a refund. This may seem odd to people on the outside looking in as I'd be crazy to refund a refund if I want my money back, right? Well, this is because she sent the $700 for a Good & Service, not for Friends & Family as I have to her, all seen above. On PayPal, Goods & Services are protected. As she put me through so much, and continues to stifle me in any way she can without paying me back, I don't want to live life walking on eggshells wondering when she'll tap the "report" button to snag the money straight back from my PayPal account up to 180 days after the payment was received.

I just want this to be over with and wake up with my $1400. I don't see why she wants to drag this out any longer than it has to.

The IRS stated that it would take six weeks to track Keturah Beverly's checks once filed. On May 14, 2022, I had an SMS text exchange from @Kei that said it would be mailed on the following Monday or the 16th. I assumed it would take a bit longer as we are overseas, however, we are about to conclude our 8th week.

She has kept me in the dark about where in the process it is, who, if anyone, has cashed her check, and if she has gotten another one reissued. This is far from how she wanted me to treat her with requesting near-daily updates about where along the lines the checks that I had cashed for her were, which I gladly shared with her because it was "her" money. Now that the tables have turned and it is my money, she's been silent.

At this point, I am going to reiterate my position that Keturah Beverly is a thief and nobody should deal with her in a professional manner.

I've tried to make contact with @Kei multiple times in the manner that she insisted me to abide by.

I'm going out on a limb to say that she is a thief and knowingly is holding my money at ransom or is going to not respond, even in the event that she gets a refund, because that is who she is.
