The Bogus Check services provided by the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office
has benefited many Oklahoma County merchants. Each year the business community loses
millions of dollars as a result of bogus checks. Many businesses have actually had
to close their doors because of these losses. To assist in the fight against crime,
the Bogus Check Restitution Program was established and designed to recover as much
of the merchant’s money as possible.
Since its inception in 1982, the District Attorney’s Office has collected and returned
over fifty million dollars to the merchants of Oklahoma County. This program is
of no burden to the taxpayers of the State of Oklahoma and is available to all merchants
FREE OF CHARGE – as it is solely funded by the fees assessed to the bogus
If you are a merchant, call the Bogus Check Merchant Advocate at
(405) 713-1813 if you would like more information concerning this program.
