Magistrate Court Bad Checks
 
I have received a bad check, so what can I do?

 

The issuance of a check on an account which is closed or has insufficient funds may constitute a crime for which the maker of the check may be prosecuted. The issuance of a check which is not honored may also give rise to a civil claim for damages. Which way you proceed in your case will depend on the circumstances in your case.
