It's not a crime until the check bounces. You can give the check as a guarantee that you'll do or deliver something, to be cashed only IF you don't. The felony will take place only if you doný do it, when the check is deposited, and bounces. If you keep your promise, you may redeem the check and shred it, nothing wrong with that.
BURLA is FRAUD. (in Brazil we use FRAUDE).

In the US banking industry, the term "non-sufficient funds" (NSF) is used to indicate that a demand for payment (a check) cannot be
honored because insufficient funds are available in the account on which the instrument was drawn. In simplified terms, a check has been presented for clearance, but the amount written on the check exceeds the available balance in the account. It is often colloquially referred to as a bad check, a "bounced" check, or a rubber check. Businesses frequently use the term "dishonored check".
- Drawer of dishonored check who fails to pay 30 days after written demand delivered by certified or registered mail is liable for damages
- Your check in the amount of $_, tendered to us on _, 19_, has been dishonored by your bank
