The Connecticut General Statutes provide for recovery of a bounced check. Send your client a letter by certified mail demanding payment of your fee and bank charges within ten days. If you do not receive it turn the matter over to the police. The police will not move on it until you show them the certified mail receipt or the unopened letter returned as non-deliverable. However, once you provide that evidence to them they will move on it. I had a client they went after for a $25.00 bounced check.
Once they take the case you may be reimbursed by either a crime victim's recovery act, or the prosecutor may plea bargain it down to a lesser charge on condition that they make restitution to you.
