It is a crime in Arizona to knowingly write a bad check, and it is one of the many ways thieves attempt to make a dishonest living. Fortunately, there is a place victims of bad checks can turn to for help. Through its check enforcement program, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office helps victims of bad checks get restitution and also prosecutes bad check writers for non-sufficient funds, account closed, unable to locate and many other types of bad checks. This service is available at no charge to the victim. Funds for the program are generated entirely from fees and payments levied on bad check writers and involve no cost to the taxpayer.

Melissa Hyde, check enforcement program business manager, is available to meet with business associations, trade organizations and other local groups to provide an overview of the program and answer any questions. The check enforcement program brochure, guidebook and warning poster for retailers are available online under the "Community Programs" tab at For more information or to request a speaker, please contact Melissa Hyde at (602) 372-7300.
