For many, a checking account is their financial lifeline… it’s the central hub
for everything from debit card swipes, to direct deposit and writing checks to
pay your personal expenses. You hear about hacks at retailers that can
compromise your credit and debit card, but have you heard about check fraud?
Check fraud is when someone, other than those named on your account, alters
information on your checks, resulting in unauthorized transactions. It is one
of the most damaging forms of identity theft, with an
average loss per fraud incident at $2,412! What’s more, while you work
with your bank and authorities to report and resolve check fraud, you are still
obligated to pay your personal expenses on time, or you run the risk of missed
and late payments appearing on your credit report.
As your trusted check company, your data security is our highest priority, which
is why we partner with EZShield and recommend you do, too!
