Sec. 15-29.4. Deceptive practices.
A person commits a deceptive practice when, with intent to defraud:
   (a)   He causes another, by deception or threat, to execute a document disposing of property or a document by which a pecuniary obligation is incurred; or
   (b)   He knowingly makes or directs another to make a false or deceptive statement addressed to the public for the purpose of promoting the sale of property or services; or
   (c)   With intent to obtain control over property or to pay for property, labor or services of another, he issues or delivers a check or other order upon a real or fictitious depository for the payment of money, knowing that it will not be paid by the depository. Failure to have sufficient funds or credit with the depository when the check or other order is issued or delivered, or when such check or other order is presented for payment and dishonored on each of two (2) occasions at least seven (7) days apart, is prima facie evidence that the offender knows that it will not be paid by the depository and that he has the intent to defraud.
