Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
If it was a check to a merchant, that merchant will demand payment in full. If payment is not made, they may document their demand and turn the matter over to the state for potential criminal charges of theft by check.
If the check was written while the person making the check knew or should have known that the account was closed or that they had insufficient funds, it may be a basis for a criminal conviction.
I would make arrangements to pay the check or you potential face greater fees related to hiring a lawyer to defend against a criminal prosecution where your record could be impacted.
There are few other options here I am afraid.
