Check Screening Tips
Useful Tips and Information
  • Be wary of new accounts - About 85% of all bad checks are written on accounts that are only a few months old.
  • Know the checks date - Pre- or post-dated checks normally cannot be prosecuted.
  • Get a complete address - Don't settle for a P.O. Box number; ask for a street address or more information.
  • Make sure figures and written amounts match - Banks will not honor checks with discrepancies between the numbers and written amounts..
  • Observe the writer's signature - Don't accept checks that have been previously signed.
  • Make sure signatures match - Check the writer's signature against a photo ID, preferably a driver's license.
