BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Dozens of PG&E customers have contacted Action News Now saying that checks they have cashed from the electric company have bounced.

PG&E Spokesperson James Noonan would not say how many customers were affected but told Action News Now that the company is aware certain refund checks have bounced. 

He said that the company bank accounts were suspended temporarily from Jan. 29-Feb. 3 right after the company declared bankruptcy. 

One PG&E customer received a $400 check from the company and deposited it around Feb. 1. However, several days later, her bank told her it bounced. 

The customer preferred to remain anonymous. 

"It could help me buy a new bed when we get a new place, when we buy a new dresser, when I need new clothes, because right now we have nothing," she said. 

Noonan said it is now safe to cash the company's checks. 

The company asks anyone with bounced checks to call the customer care line at 1-(800)-743-5000. PG&E said it is working to get the customers new checks.
