        Be sure to charge them a bounced check fee to cover the costs of your bank charging you for their bounced check. Money order or cash only.

        I had a roommate do that to me once. I had paid the bills (tv, utilities, phone) and he cut me a check for half of it all only to bounce on me.

          BlueBrained....Have you contacted the check writer to see if he/she will make good? I'd do that first. I bounced a couple of checks once because a check written to me had bounced. We were able to get everything settled without going to court.

            I think it'd be the same threshold as theft; while it'd be the state's attorney's final say, he can choose to prosecute anything over $150.00 as a felony.

            Passing bad checks is a tough case to prove, so most prosecutors are happy to file a charge and start evidence gathering and then reduce or eliminate the charge if the offending party makes good.

                            If he is in town, or if his bank has a local affiliate, take it to his bank and see if the money is in the account. They can tell you if this person is close to covering and just made a mistake, or if the account is closed, or if this happens often. This information will help you decide what is next.

                              In most cases of a bounced check you have to prove that the person writing the bounced checks did so in bad faith.

                              I think, if the guy wrote the $1900 check when he knew he only had $100 in his checking account, that would be considered bad faith.
