Check Fraud

Check Fraud Attorney (Penal Code §476a)

Passing or attempted to cash/deposit a bad checks (aka: false check) can occur in many ways.

 

The Law of Bad Checks

When a person writes or passes a check, knowing that there are insufficient funds in the bank to cover that amount on the check, and that person intends to commit a fraud by writing or passing that check, then that person has committed the crime.

 

Insufficient Funds

Some people believe that receiving an NSF notice is similar to passing a bad check. But notice that the commit a bad check crime, the person must have had the intent to commit a fraud. In cases of simple oversight, it would not be a crime if the person just didn’t know that the amount was more than what was present in the account.
