The Program Works Because...


  • Bad check reports are easy to file and follow-up action is prompt.

  • Upon recovery, 100% of the face value of the check is returned to the victim.

  • There is no minimum dollar restriction.

  • Bad check offenders must complete an educational class at their own expense.

  • The program operates at no cost to the county or the taxpayers.
