UPDATE: 5:56p: A quick email to Sharon Bock, the longtime Clerk of Courts for Palm Beach County seems to have solved the misunderstanding. Here is the “bad check” form that led to Natalie Matus’ arrest. It seems she wrote bad checks to “Quick Weight Loss Centers.” Interestingly, the checks were for under $1000 combined. Her bond was $6,000 to get out of jail.

UPDATE: As of 4:45p, the Palm Beach County Clerk’s Office is refusing to release the bad check report. We are continuing to effort.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — We expect the complete police report later in the day but can report that Natalie Matus is now charged with two counts of check fraud.

Matus is listed as the “Clergy Administrator” for Congregation B’Nai Israel in Boca Raton.

The 38 year old resident of El Dorado Drive was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on two counts of “Fraud, insufficient funds, obtain goods services $150 or more.” She was ultimately released on $6,000 bond.

Check back for the affidavit of probable cause as filed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. We will publish it as soon as we receive the document.
