Bad Check Program

The Pima County Attorney’s Office joined with local law enforcement agencies and many local business people in 1996 to establish Pima County’s Bad Check Program. The program is designed to help reimburse individuals or merchants for the losses they incur from accepting bad checks. The Bad Check Program is available free of charge to any individual or merchant in Pima County. We will collect from the person who submitted the bad check the face value of the check, plus a $25 victim fee for each bad check. For more information, please call (520) 724-4100.
