What's a returned check notice?

Someone gave you a bad check, and now you're out what they owe you. Although aggressive correspondence is the best way to collect, if you need more time to be ready to go that route, a returned check notice demanding repayment is a gentler way to approach the issue.

Here's the information you'll need to have handy to complete your returned check notice:
- Who the customer is : Have the name and contact information of whoever wrote the returned check ready.
- How much they owe you : Know how much the check was for and whether there are any additional fees.
