The mission of the Check Fraud Division is to investigate, prosecute, and collect monies from hot check writers in order to reimburse their victims. The Check Fraud Division is one of the few divisions at the District Attorney’s Office that is able to take reports of criminal conduct directly from the victim of the crime. There is no cost to the victim to submit checks to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution and collection.
In some instances, you may be required to provide a narrative affidavit of the events surrounding the transaction made on the tendered check or checks.
Once you have submitted a check to our office and we determine that it meets the above criteria, we will enter the check into our system and proceed to inform the check writer that we are proceeding with a case on the check. Once the DA’s Office has accepted the check, do not attempt to collect on it. If a check writer makes a partial payment, the check will be returned to you by our office and will not be accepted again.
