The Hot Check Program assists Fayetteville Merchants and Citizens regain lost revenue due to receiving checks returned by financial institutions for an insufficient balance or account closed status (hot checks). This program also gives the hot check writer a chance to make good on his or her checks without being prosecuted, and prosecutes the hot check writer who does not take care of their debts. The Hot Check Program keeps on top of current and new laws concerning checks and theft and helps educate the public on the growing problem of bad checks. This program has been acknowledged by many of the merchants as "working for their company."  Additionally, this program serves as a clearing house to merchants for fictitious accounts, stop payments, accounts not found, felonies, irregular signatures, and forgeries.
