Did you receive a letter from a “District Attorney Bad Check Restitution Program” or from the “Check Enforcement Program”?
You may think that your local prosecutor is really after you, but most times, a debt collector sent these letters. The debt collector pays your county prosecutor to let it use Official Letterhead to make you think you are really in trouble. Of course, you should pay the merchant if you wrote a check that did not clear, but these debt collectors are often breaking the law by charging unlawful fees, making phony threats that you may be prosecuted, and pretending to be the district attorney.
