Contact the Hot Check Division immediately to arrange to pay off the checks, merchant’s fee, and the County Attorney’s fee. You can pay by mail with a money order or cashier’s check, and if paying in person, you may pay in cash. You may also make payment over the phone via Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. An additional 2.19% processing free will be charged on a credit card transaction. As you would expect, the Hot Check Division does not accept personal checks for payment. Do not make restitution to the merchant directly; restitution is to be paid through the County Attorney’s Office which will then be remitted to the merchant.
