What if my check bounces?

You need to be aware of the law that covers a person who post-dates a check or issues a check in payment of an obligation when he / she does not have any funds in the bank or if the funds are not enough to cover the check.


If the drawer of the check fails to deposit the amount needed to cover the check within 3 days after receiving a notice from the bank and / or the holder or payee that the check has been dishonored because of insufficient funds, it will be prima facie evidence of dishonesty that constitutes false pretense or a fraudulent act.
