Check Screening Tips

Bad check screening tips.​

  • Get a complete street address, not just a P.O. Box, and verify phone number.
  • Observe the writer's signature and make sure the signature matches their I.D.
  • Make sure figure and written amounts match.
  • Be wary of new accounts.
  • Note the check's date.  Post dated checks normally can not be prosecuted.
