Bad checks cost Metro businesses millions of dollars annually. Collecting payment for these checks is, at best, a time-consuming problem. At worst, they can be devastating to a small business, resulting in higher prices for goods and services. And unlawfully issuing a worthless check is a crime.
The County Attorney’s Bad Check Program is designed to help you collect payment for these checks at no cost to you. Because it is a pre-trial diversion program, you avoid time-consuming court appearances. And it benefits the check writer by enabling restitution without criminal charges. However, if the check writer does not participate in the program, prosecution can begin.
Our goal is to get full payment, including reasonable bank charges, for the bad checks your business receives.
