Types of Legal Penalties

There are usually two types of legal penalties when it has to deal with NSF check laws, and they are civil and criminal. Criminal laws usually deal more with fraudulent checks, while civil laws involve normal bounced checks along with any incurring costs associated with the NSF check (ie legal fees). Usually in most cases, civil penalties are the most common as fraudulent checks are becoming less and less common. Criminal and civil cases are punished on a state to state basis, so if you are wondering about your own state laws, please visit your state’s legal website.

Collecting the Money You are Owed

Recovering money you are owed from a bounced check is a different story, as there are different NSF check laws that deal with this. Writing a formal letter asking for repayment and sending it using certified mail is the norm for some state laws. You can file a lawsuit to gain additional funds in addition to the check, but this also wastes valuable time that is needed to run your business to look for a lawyer and spend time in court.
