a bounced check is only a crime under certain circumstances. Has to be a simultaneous exchange for goods and services, vs payment to creditor. Many people are the position of a creditor without even realizing it. Like accepting payments on a contract. As opposed to requiring payment at the time of service.

My local town cops loves it when people bounce checks, he will personally go to their residence give them a very short timeline to pay up or im pretty sure he takes them to jail. It has never got that far so I am unsure what happens to the people, usually when they see a cop role in they pay up immediately.

That's what i got from it here too Passthru. That's why i just get the J.P. to send a letter and hearing, then drop it if they don't show/pay.

Had one guy who knew the ropes. After he got the letter, he stopped in and asked if he could make payments. I said sure and took about a tenth of it. He didn't ever come back so i went to the J.P. again and she told me as soon as i accepted money for the check, she couldn't do anything for me.

JP. sends the letter here. Or do you mean you have to send a bill?

Or JP. sends letter with costs added and a hearing date.

I have to send a letter with bill certified mail giving them 30 days to correct. Then if no correction is made I have to go to JP with proof I sent letter certified

I only ever had one bounced check from a guy I did some contracting work for.
I went through all the steps from calling him, to stopping at his house, calling the banks, sending certified mail, going to the JP, trying to get my money through a sheriff sale (didn't happen), and showing up to his bankruptcy court hearing.
At the hearing the judge told me he owed over $90,000 to 91 creditors. 91 people or companies he owed money to.
I ask what that meant for me. The judge just laughed and said "He only owes you $1,100. The big boys get their money first and he doesn't have much of it. You will never see a nickle."

So my advice is.....be prepared to waste lots of time and effort collecting on a bad check.

Exactly.
That's why i said in my first post to stop and cut your losses after the registered letter. The sherriff sale deal is a joke.

I got relatively few in my 25 years in retail, but I tracked down almost every one. Checking the bank account on the 1st and 15th of the month sometimes worked, but I had luck calling bosses and or family members as well if I could find them. If it came from a cop or someone in the military, their higher ups took care of it quick. Everybody writes a few bounced checks when they are young and they make it right, but someone who writes a significant check knowing it is bad... that's another thing.

No chance to get the law involved these days, but be creative if you can.
