Check Fraud

Many people worry about fraud relating to credit & debit cards, but there are some risks associated with using checks as well. If someone gets their hands on your check, they will have a copy of your handwriting, signature, account information, and personal information. Also, your name, address, and phone number. Sometimes people also have their driver’s license number or social security numbers imprinted on their checks. This is not a recommended practice! It makes ID theft even easier!

Did you know that stolen checks can be washed and reused? After, they can be made out to a different person. Instead of who they were originally intended for! Since many people don’t get their checks back, thieves will typically leave the amount the same. They do this hoping you’ll see the check cleared. You’ll see the amount that you wrote it for without realizing it never went to the person you wrote it to.
