Hot Check Division

For Merchants

The Hot Check Division of the Midland County District Attorney's Office is responsible for the investigation of cases involving the issuance of worthless checks and thefts or fraud involving checks. We work with merchants and check writers to recover funds lost in these cases.

View the procedures for filing a returned check (PDF). The merchant agreement form (PDF) needs to be submitted only once. A hot check information form (PDF) must be submitted with each check filed. You can also access the returned check notice letter (PDF) or the affidavit of service (PDF).
