Keep Your Checking Account Safe From Check Fraud

I read a good article in Costo Connection on how to safeguard your checking account from check fraud. Harland Clarke (Costco’s check printer) suggests you do the following: 

  1. Incorporate security features into your checks, i.e. watermarks and photocopy detection 
  2. Store your checks in a safe, secure place in your home and never leave your checks/checkbook in your car 
  3. Review your bank statements on a regular basis – look for fraudulent transactions 
  4. Check for missing checks in boxes of new checks you ordered.  If any are missing, report them immediately.
