Check Fraud

August 22nd, 2014 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

The law uses the term “check fraud” to describe several deceptive practices. The most common type of check fraud is writing non-sufficient funds, or NSF, checks. NSF checks are checks written on bank accounts that do not have enough money to cover the amount of the check. When the payee deposits or cashes the check, the bank will not honor it. Paperhanging, which is similar to NSF check writing, occurs when a person writes a check on a closed bank account. The check could be his or stolen from someone. Although the check is not altered, the information is not valid.
