Why should the state give her a break? Because she's a female? Because she's never been arrested? A crime is a crime she shouldn't have done it plain and simple.

I received a complaint about an alleged bad debt from Portfolio recovery Associates, in that complaint were two documents which were bills of sale for the debt according to them.

Mark,

First of all, section 831.09 of the Florida Statutes prohibits passing a fraudulent "note, or any bank bill, check, draft, or promissory note" so I don't see how it would apply to a bill of sale between a buyer and a seller.

Second, in general it is not a crime to use "White Out" or other means to redact information from a document unless you have some specific evidence that the party who performed the redaction did so to perpetrate fraud or misrepresentation. Documents attached to lawsuits are frequently redacted to remove sensitive information, since otherwise that information would become part of a public record.
