Not paying your debts can lead to bad credit bad but writing bad checks is illegal and a felony and can land you in jail. There are civil and criminal penaties for each check written. The people that you wrote those checks to did not get paid and if they choose to, they can can turn them over to the police and have warrants issued for your arrest for what is known as "check kiting".
