A check returned "account closed" establishes that no funds were on deposit at the time the check was presented, and does not require notification to the writer of the check, as is required with non-sufficient funds checks. See Section 832, Florida Statutes, for additional information on worthless checks. If you have received an "account closed" check, you must send the following to the State Attorney's Office in the county where you received the worthless check:
1. A fully completed Worthless Check Affidavit
2. The original worthless check. The reason for the check having been returned must be stamped or written on the check by the bank.
3. The worthless check writer’s photo, if available.
4. Photostatic copies of merchandise receipts, invoices, lease agreements, etc., if available.
Send the original, completed worthless check affidavit, along with the additional (as applicable) items set out in numbers 2 through 5 above, to our office.
