Aiken County Worthless Check Unit Services

Collection Procedure

When you receive a worthless check and it meets the legal requirements, you can submit the check and the Victim/Vendor Worksheet form to the Office of Solicitor for collection. This relieves you of the burden of the traditional collection and prosecution process.

The Solicitor’s Worthless Check Unit will contact the check writer, collect and disburse restitution to the victim. If restitution is not made pursuant to the requirements of the program, the check writer will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Caution: Once you submit a worthless check
to the Worthless Check Unit,
DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENTS IN ANY
FORM FROM THE CHECK WRITER.

This may void collection and
prosecution efforts.
All contacts with the check writer
must be made through the
Worthless Check Unit after
submission of a check.

Prosecution Procedure

When the Worthless Check Program receives a worthless check complaint and restitution is not made in accordance with the legal requirements, a criminal charge will be filed. The Office of Solicitor has full statutory discretion concerning the prosecution of your worthless check complaint.
