The check won't go through if you don't have any money in your account.

Depending on the amount of the check and your relationship with the bank, the bank may pay it and charge your an NSF fee. If you have a habit of bouncing checks, they will return it.

If you don't have the money in your account to cover it, you shouldn't be writing checks. If you KNOW you don't have the money, that's fraud. Anyone can make a mistake and bounce a check but, if you develop a pattern of this, you can get yourself into some serious trouble.

Knowingly writing a check that you know you don't have money for is against the law. If you do this, you risk criminal charges from the merchant.
