Bogus Check Law and Legal Definition

Bogus check refers to a dishonored check. A bogus check is dishonored because an account either contains insufficient funds or it does not exist. In State v. Moore, 128 S.C. 192, 196 (S.C. 1924), it was ruled that money obtained by a bogus check is the result of a false representation. It is also known as bad check, rubber check or cold check.
