I sent a letter to the former owner of SR concerning the unpaid fees, but it bounced back as undeliverable. If the intent were to not pay one's obligations, why bother mailing an unsigned check? Is this a legal maneuver?
Bob, I can't think of any way this might be a legal maneuver. Most likely, just sloppy. its possible that as SR is winding down operations, they let go of the person who knew to run the checks, once printed, through the signing machine.
I sent an e-mail the the scheduler (the good one). If I don't get a reply, I'll contact RBG and ask for their assistance. I am sure that they would not want 100s of shoppers contacting them and might be motivated to help fix this PDQ either by arranging payment (if they purchased SR rather than simply SR's assets) or sharing current contact information for the old company.
