The bank is not required to notify you when a check bounces. You are responsible for keeping a current and accurate check/transaction register. By balancing it with your monthly statement, you will know your account balance and prevent overdrafts.
State laws generally provide that it is illegal to write a check—knowingly or negligently—without having sufficient funds to cover the check on the day you write it.
