CHECK DIVERSION PROGRAM
The check diversion program has four main goals:
Increase the amount of restitution returned to victims of bad checks
Increase the accountability of all worthless check writers, regardless of the amount of the check
Promote to local merchants more effective check acceptance and protection procedures
Reduce the risk of repeat worthless check activity through proper training
Checks are entered into the FCS system.
Check writers are contacted by the FCS restitution program regarding the checks. Four scenarios are then generally possible:
A. Check writer pays the Check Diversion Program – 100% of the face value of the check is returned to the merchant plus bank fees if paid. Any restitution received (even partial payment) will be forwarded to the merchant within a month of receipt from the check writer.
B. Offender completes a financial counseling program offered by the Check Diversion Program.
C. Check writer fails to pay – the check is sent for prosecution review and proceedings.
D. If check is not at prosecutable limit check writer is red flagged. The system will then notify if more checks are entered and prosecution review is done again.
Checks Eligible for the Program:
NSF, Account Closed, Refer to Maker, Debit card charge backs, ACH NSF’s and Electronic Checks received that do not exceed $2500.00. If your check exceeds $2500.00, please report to law enforcement.
Worthless checks LESS THAN 120 DAYS from the date issued by the check writer. (exception: first time users to the program can send checks up to 2 years old.)
