However, it’s likely that if your bank spots a post-dated cheque that you have written, it will return it with the reason given as “post-dated cheque”. For example, suppose that I write a check today to my mechanic for $500. Nationally, there’s a split of authority about whether post-dated checks fall within worthless check laws: [Some courts hold that they do not,] because the delivery of such a check implies on its face a present insufficiency of funds .

There may be an argument that in the latter type of case, the check-writer does “know at the time of the making” that he doesn’t have, and won’t have, sufficient funds to cover the check. knowing at the time he did not have sufficient funds.”).
