Best Practices

Best practices to manage your risk:

  1. Use high-security checks.
    High-security checks are the best way to deter and detect check fraud.
  2. Store checks under lock and key.
    Always keep your checks in a safe, controlled environment
    away from signature stamps.
  3. Incorporate checks and balances.
    Centralize check writing. Make sure more than one person handles accounts payable. Reconcile bank statements daily. Investigate check numbers cashed out of sequence and checks made out to "cash."
  4. Take advantage of Positive Pay services.
    Electronic review of check records issued to your bank can prevent fraud. Reconcile exceptions promptly to spot fraud.
  5. Stay one step ahead of thieves.
    Immediately notify your bank of changes in signing
    authorization. Require two signatures for large amounts.
    Set up a separate account for large dollar limits.
  6. Peace of mind is a phone call away.
    Don't fight fraud alone. Let Safeguard help.
