Some huge holes in Goldmark story

The story about Goldmark and the tenant being evicted did not give enough details. The facts were:

• The rent box was broken into.

• The police were called.

• Goldmark started eviction because rent was not paid.

What the story did not tell was:

• Did the tenant take their money-order receipt to the place they purchased it and put a stop payment on it?

• What company cashed the money order?

• If the money order was made out to Goldmark, how could it get cashed?

• Why was there not an uproar about the company that cashed the check?

Rent is not considered paid till it reaches the office. A rent box is put at the property for the convenience of the tenants. The management company of the property has to pay a person (in most cases this is not an employee of the company) to pick up the rent and bring it to the office. This would be like mailing a check and the check getting lost in the mail. The tenant is still responsible to make a rent payment.

I want to know who cashed the check and why is the tenant not going after them for cashing a check made out to Goldmark.
