Explanation: If you pay a company by cheque and you have insufficient funds to cover it, the payee's bank will return the cheque ("the cheque bounces") to the person presenting it (the cheque will be marked "return to drawer"). You may have then to pay a 'returned check charge' to the payee.
-> "bounced cheque
A cheque that the bank refuses payment on because there is not enough money in the account of the person who wrote the cheque. The bank usually sends the cheque back to the person it was written out to (the payee). The cheque is marked ‘return to drawer’. When this happens you have to ask the person who wrote the cheque to give you cash instead or to put some money in their account." http://www.money-bsa.org.uk/site/page.php?cms=8&p=273
