Tell everybody

I dont see why it should be against the law, in fact some people owe my business money and I am considering putting a large sign on my boundary wall with their names and address and amount oweing and for how long if it upsets them so what? why should they get away with it, these people have taken goods or services and not paid so why not let the world know!

It is ILLEGAL

Displaying bounced checks is illegal. It is considered in an intentional tort under the invasion of privacy. "Public Disclosure of Private Fact - highly offensive publicity concerning the private life of the plaintiff." Thank you to my Legal Environment professor. He used displaying bounced checks as the most common invasion of privacy.
