Check Fraud Prevention and Reporting

Ottawa County Check Fraud Prevention and Reporting Guide

     The Criminal Investigation Unit of HDPS will work with you in Check Fraud prevention and promise our cooperation should you become a victim.

     By following these guidelines, check fraud (nonsufficient funds [NSF], account closed, and forged checks) can be dramatically reduced.

     If you become the victim of check fraud, adherence to these guidelines will greatly assist in a successful prosecution of suspects.  Attached below is a Check Fraud Packet you will fill out when reporting a check fraud incident.
