Yolo County residents and merchants get money back from bad check writers
Business, Crime, News

From the Yolo County District Attorney's office.

District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced that the Yolo County District Attorney Check Prosecution Program recovered $32,918.13 for Yolo County merchants and residents during the month of June, 2011.  

“Much of the money was paid to the victims by check writers before criminal proceedings were initiated. Once criminal complaints are filed and arrest warrants are issued, the court supervises the payments of restitution,” stated District Attorney Reisig.

It is not uncommon for check writers to “bounce” checks to businesses or individuals.  These checks are generally written on checking accounts with non-sufficient funds (NSF) or on CLOSED ACCOUNTS.  If businesses or individuals in Yolo County have been unable to get cooperation from the check writers, they are encouraged to contact the DA Check Program. While stolen and forged checks must be reported to local law enforcement agencies, NSF and CLOSED ACCOUNT checks can be submitted to the District Attorney Check Program for investigation.

For more information about the DA Check Program, call (530)666-8200 or contact the program at 301 Second Street, Woodland Ca 95695. Any merchant or resident needing check forms can pick them up at their local Chamber of Commerce office located at:
