- a copy of the check
- a copy of the notification letter
- a copy of the certified mail receipt and/or return receipt postcard
- bad check affidavit – download here –the more identifiers you can provide us the easier it is for us to find the bad check writer (Date of Birth, SS#, DL#, etc.)
If you have more than one bad check, submit paperwork for the largest check, but also include copies of the smaller checks. We will file on the largest amount but include the other checks in the restitution amount.
We will make every effort to obtain restitution, but we cannot guarantee that we will get your money back. Sometimes the only option is to have them sit in jail.
