Check Fraud Prevention for Businesses

Check fraud is a problem which costs businesses and financial institutions billions of dollars each year.

By altering an existing check or creating a counterfeit check using stolen and/or illegally purchased account information, criminals attempt to make purchases, obtain bank account funds, or finance transactions. For a listing of best practices and fraud protection tools recommended by the Better Business Bureau, see the July 27 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
