Why Cheques Go Bad: Understanding the Causes

An NSF cheque occurs when the account on which the cheque is drawn lacks sufficient funds to honor the payment. While insufficient account balance is the most common cause, other reasons can include intentional cheque cancellation by the account holder, frozen funds, nonexistent accounts, or even physical damage to the cheque itself.

Bank Charges and Overdrafts: Immediate Financial Consequences

Banks impose penalties on the drawer for NSF cheques. If honoring the cheque results in a minor overdraft, some banks may still process it but will impose fees that compound until the overdraft is covered. If the overdraft would be significant, the bank typically returns the cheque to the depositor's bank, which may further debit the depositor's account for their own handling fees.

Civil Lawsuits and Criminal Penalties: The Legal Dimension

After receiving an NSF cheque, you have the option of re-submitting it in the hope that it clears the second time around, or you can proceed to legal action. Depending on the laws in your jurisdiction and the cheque amount, you may choose to file a civil lawsuit to recover the amount or press criminal charges against the drawer.
