Worthless checks information now available at DA’s website

In his ongoing quest to provide the citizens of Jefferson Parish with updated information, District Attorney Paul D. Connick, Jr. has included a Worthless Checks page on his office’s website, www.jpda.us.

Our Worthless Checks Section staff, part of the Economic Crimes Unit, attempts to recoup losses incurred when people write checks on accounts having insufficient funds or that are closed. Our staff can attempt to secure restitution or assist in processing criminal complaints.

In addition to the new web page, we offer tips on safeguarding against accepting worthless checks on the page on our “Frequently Asked Questions,” or FAQ page, which is accessible through the menu bar at the top of our website.

The Worthless Checks page is found under the criminal departments menu and through the section page links at the bottom of the website.

The page also includes PDFs for a sample demand letter victims can use when seeking payment for bad checks, and a worthless checks affidavit.

The new page is the latest edition to the newly rebuilt site. Last month, The District Attorney’s Office launched its new mobile page, allowing users access to all online content, including news releases that were not previously available to people equipped with Androids or iPhones.

The Worthless Checks page can be found here.
