This is a Notice of Bad Check or NSF Check - Civil. A "dishonored check" (also known as a "bounced check" or "bad check") is a Bad Check or NSF check which the bank will not pay because there is no such checking account, or there are insufficient funds in the account to pay the Bad Check or NSF check. In order to attempt the greatest possible recovery on a Bad Check or NSF check, the business owner, or any other person given a Bad Check or NSF check, may be required by state law to notify the debtor that the Bad Check or NSF check was dishonored.
