A debt collector who commits one of the prohibited collection practices faces civil penalties.

The penalties can include damages caused by the debt collector’s violation.

The evidence is mixed on how effective that ban was, with both sides often cherry-picking from the most comprehensive report on that law, written in 2004 by Christopher Koper of George Mason University.

“The ban did not appear to affect gun crime during the time it was in effect, but some evidence suggests it may have modestly reduced gunshot victimizations had it remained in place for a longer period,” Koper wrote in 2013. Lott Jr., at the pro-gun Crime Prevention Research Center, notes that such bans would target .223-caliber weapons but would not affect more powerful semiautomatic rifles using .30-06 caliber, which are used for hunting deer.

But given the attention of recent mass public shootings, is Rubio correct that none of the major shootings in recent years would have been prevented by new gun laws?

Rubio was not specific in his time frame — and a spokesman declined to elaborate — but for the purposes of this fact check we will go back as far as the Newtown shooting in 2012, which touched off the current gun debate.

The notification not to pay the postdated check until the check’s date is valid for six months; however, if the customer’s notification was made verbally without also putting it in writing, the customer’s notification remains valid for only 14 days.

For example, if the customer verbally informs the bank on May 1 that the customer has written a check with the date June 1, the bank will not be liable if it pays the check on May 15.If a bank does pay a postdated check before the check’s date even though it has received proper notice from the customer, the bank is liable to the customer for any loss resulting from the bank prematurely paying the check. § § 11-4-401, 11-4-403) West Virginia law contains several prohibitions addressing early payment of postdated checks.In other words, a customer who has properly notified the bank of the postdated check can sue the bank for cashing the customer’s postdated check before the postdate if the bank’s action causes the customer loss, such as causing other checks to bounce.
