Check fraud is a scam in which a scammer impersonates a vendor, sends a bad check for more than you’ve billed and then asks you to wire the overage to a third party. This scam often includes a reason for the overpayment and an immediate need for the reimbursement.
You’ll receive an electronic notification alert when we find discrepancies between check issue information you provide and checks presented. Then you can decide to either forward the payment or return the check.
