From the Desk of Attorney Don Leviton: What to Do When You Receive a “NSF” Check

“From the Desk of Don Leviton, Esq.” is a featured article from Brown & Joseph’s General Counsel, Don Leviton. May 13, 2013.

When a customer provides you with a bad check, they also provide you with a very easy and celebrity news valuable means of establishing the obligation as well as the opportunity to recover significantly more than the amount of the check, provided that you follow the requirements of the statutes in your State. Most State’s statutes provide that treble damages (three times the amount of the check) plus the amount of the check can be recovered from the maker should the maker or drawer fail to pay the amount owing to the payee within 30 days following a prescribed written demand for  the amount of the check. Additionally, by most State’s statutes, a creditor can recover costs of suit as well as reasonable attorney’s fees.
