Not unless you intended to defraud the recipient. If you know you have $100 in the bank and you go on a shopping spree spending thousands you may be criminally prosecuted.

Writing checks on a closed account will almost always end you up in jail

no intent, just a mistake by both myself and the bank. they charge 50 for each check plus the check amount even thought the bank admitted they were also at fault and didnt charge for the overdraft. what should have been 93 is now almost 400! i dont have the money and dont know what to do!

go to your bank and speak with a manager. Alot of the time they will waive some or all the fees. But you definetly need to go to each business where the check was written and pay what you owe them. Don't worry about the bank balance for now.
I had the same misfortune happen to me and I never did pay Farmers Bank. I did pay the businesses! Whatever you do, do not just ignore the letters.
Good luck.

What if the account was closed and you write it to a check exchange place?

That's intentionally defrauding the check cashing business. The sole purpose of writing a check on YOUR account is so, if for some reason, you can't pay them back, they will pull the money out of your checking account. If you know it's closed and you proceeded to write a check regardless, you could face some serious jail time. Better hope you pay them back before it's due!

Just make sure you work out a payment plan with bank an stick to it . If you don't do what you agree to then they will arrest you.
