Non Sufficient Funds Check can be a Felony in North County

Issuing a non sufficient funds check (NSF) is really a theft related offense and may be a felony in North County and all of California.  If the check is issued for $450 or less, it may be a misdemeanor. The crime requires issuing a check when you knew there was insufficient funds to cover it at the time and intending to defraud another.   Many times these NSF checks can be made good quickly and criminal charges can be avoided.  The facts and cricumstances of any non suffienct funds check case are extremely important in determining whether the check was written knowing there was no money in the account at the time and if it was done to defraud another.  Post dating a check may avoid the problem, if you are realistically anticipating funds to be available.  You are essentially telling the other person there are not funds now but there should be later, and the facts will determine whether you have issued it with an intent to defraud.
