Add security to your business’ cash management with additional layers of protection to further enhance risk mitigation and fraud reduction. When payees present a check for payment, we compare them against the approved list of checks you issue each day. We compare account number, date, check number and amount – and only honor checks that match completely. We send you copies of checks that do not match, for investigation.
Our fraud mitigation tools are designed to make it easier for you to monitor your payments so you can stay ahead of threats to your business’ finances.
