    No one. The bank would send it back to you to sort out. whether that would be a claim court or not...it would be up to you,

    Maybe no one.

    If bank suspected bad,they just wouldn't honor it.

    If they did cash it, it's then up to them to prove you knew it was bad or the writer knew funds insufficient. If they cant prove in court you Knowingly cashed a bad one, nothing happens legally to you.

    Often, a bad check is written for far more than in account and simply bounces.

    If writer defrauded bank, then they have to again prove in court he did it knowingly. Many dont keep their accounts up to date and write one for a few dollars over and bank just covers it with overdraft protection.

    Jail would only be an option if they could prove fraud.

    You will be required to pay it back, though.

    If you knew the check to be fake you could. If you believed it to be valid it would be on the person who gave it to you.

    Well if you did not intentionally do it you wouldn’t face charges you’d have to inform who the check writer was tho
