but i mean does he have to send me written notice or proof the check was returned or anything?
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 7 years ago.
No, not when he's seeking criminal charges.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
so i have no grace period or time to pay it even though in NC there is the worthless check program?
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 7 years ago.
That is correct. He can go to the police and file the report. The police can conduct their investigation and submit the file to the prosecutor for charges to be authorized.
