Prevent Check Fraud With Our Positive Pay Service

The best defense against check fraud for every business is using a treasury management service like Check Positive Pay.  Some of the types of check fraud tactics targeting business accounts include duplicate and counterfeit checks (including payroll checks), lost or stolen checks, altered and check washing, and forged signatures.

Check fraud is still a very common scheme affecting business.

In some cases, fraudsters intercept mailed checks and alter the payee. FLCBank recommends not mailing large checks through regular postal services like the United States Postal Service (USPS). If payment through ACH or other secure debit transactions isn’t an option, then mailing a paper check should be done using a secure, certified insured carrier such as FedEx or UPS to confirm delivery to the intended recipient. If a check hasn’t been cashed timely it’s best to call the intended recipient to confirm receipt and issue a stop payment if not received.
