Bad Checks

The Crow Wing County Attorney's Office has grown increasingly concerned about the negative impact created by bad checks on local businesses. Bad checks affect everyone in terms of higher consumer costs that must be passed on to offset losses, and increased taxes to cover the additional costs for law enforcement and prosecution.

In an effort to combat this problem, we assist local merchants and individuals with bad check losses. Our primary goals are to increase the accountability of those who pass bad checks and to obtain full restitution for the victim.

Follow the link to the required forms to initiate prosecution of a bad check. Please follow instructions precisely and submit the completed forms to the Crow Wing County Attorney's Office.
