I am a business owner, and I have received a check that has been returned for insufficient funds, or the account has been closed. What can I do?
First, bring the original check to the Webster Groves Police Department's Records Unit, located at #4 South Elm Avenue. You must complete a "Request for 10 Day Letter" form (available below). The original check will be held as evidence. You will receive a copy of the form, and a copy of your check for your records. The Webster Groves Police Department will send a notification to the individual or party responsible for the check, directing payment to be made. If payment is not made within 10 days of mailing the letter, the Criminal Investigations Unit will initiate an investigation.

The Criminal Investigations Unit encourages business owners to request identification writers, and verify it, it is important to include this information on the check itself. Request for 10 Day Letter
