Dollar & More has filed suit against Ursula Keller, alleging a check she cashed with the company bounced.

The suit was filed Sept. 19 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on April 20, 2011, Dollar & More cashed a check made payable to Keller and Kinsel Ford in the amount of $4,739 with the assurance of Keller that her and Kinsel Ford’s endorsements were valid.

Two days later, Dollar & More deposited the check. Later the funds were withdrawn from the account with the explanation that Kinsel Ford’s endorsement was not valid.

“Plaintiff provided defendant with the facts … and gave defendant the opportunity to correct the error,” the suit states. “Defendant has not done so.”

The suit accuses Keller of committing fraud.

Dollar & More is suing for actual and exemplary damages.

Beaumont attorney Chris Portner of Portner Bond represents the plaintiff.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B193-190
