Detained by bank for false pretenses 7 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
Client went into a Bank to cash a payroll check and ended up in hand-cuffs. While waiting for the teller to process the Client's check, they decided to call the police because they believed that the check that was fake.

In fact:
1.The check was not fake.
2.The bank has offered me $200 to compensate my damages.

Question: How would you estimate a dollar amount for the damages Client suffered?

Damages:

1. Client was forced to sit and wait in hand-cuffs in front of a grocery store (The bank is located inside this grocery store), for a long period of time, during which humiliated and embarrassed the Client. There were hundreds of people walking in and out (some of whom I know) looking at Client as if he was a criminal.

2. Client is seeking counseling.
