Bad checks

How much was it for? Depending on the amount, it may cost you more in collecting than for what's it's worth. I had one that I called, emailed, sent letters to and nothing. So I contacted the police dept, and they said I had to contact the office where the transaction took place, which was in another state. Eventually I got the money, but the officer never returned my phone call becaue it was under $100. I;ve collected all but 2 so far, sometimes it's just an accident, but if you can;t reach by phone, chances are you won't get it.

I used to manage a local Pizza Hut, when I would get a bad check, I would first place a call to them then send a registered letter, if they didn't respond I just took the check to the DA and they handled it from there on. Didn't cost anything as the DA tacks a fee onto the total of the check when the person came to pick up the check, then the DA would issue a check to Pizza Hut. HTH

Thanks for the replies! I tried calling this person & they never returned my calls so I sent a letter certified/return receipt. Here in Illinois they get 30 days to pay but in the mean time I will take the check to her bank. It was only $35.00 but for me it's not about the money. People shouldn't write checks if they have no money in their account to cover it. From what I hear it's not uncommon for her to do this. Wish I would have known before!
