A legal notice u/s 138 of NIA shall be sent. The person has not mentioned about the jurisdiction. The address is important to send notice. Criminal liability is important. Nothing is impossible. To issue.

You have not mentioned anything about how you received the cheque. Irrespective of which, I assume that you do not have CURRENT address of the issuer. You can issue a legal demand notice to the person on the address that you have irrespective of whether he has changed his address at a later point in time. If you DO NOT have his address all-together, then you need to take unethical means to find his address (such as following him, tracking his whereabouts, trying to collect data from bank and workplace unofficially) and then issue the notice. You may get in touch if you are in need my services.
