WHAT WE DO

The Platte County Bad Check Enforcement Program is a service provided to local merchants who have received bad checks from customers. 


HOW IT WORKS

The Platte County Attorney's Office will attempt to collect the debt owed on behalf of the merchant and will prosecute the check writer if the debt remains unpaid.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR MERCHANTS

When you come to our office you will need to pay a $10 fee (per check), provide front/back copy of returned check(s) + the bank's printed reason why the checks were returned + proof of any bank fees you paid.

You will also need to sign the Merchant Affidavit *(download below) in the presence of our notary.
