Deposit account fraud occurs when an individual knowingly attempts to deposit a check with the full knowledge that it won’t be honored by the account it is being drawn on. When sums of $500 or more are in question, the accused faces penalties of multiple years in prison and a possible fine of $5,000 per count. Multiple counts also increase one’s exposure to a lengthy prison sentence.
