Forged signaturesThe program applies to legitimate bank checks that are forged with your signature, as the payer, that results in a debit to your checking account.
Forged endorsementsThe program applies to a legitimate check that is endorsed and cashed or deposited by someone other than the designated payee based upon a fraudulent and false endorsement. The program, however, does not apply to a check that bears a legitimate original endorsement that is secondarily fraudulently endorsed.
Altered checksThe program applies to legitimate checks that contain altered information such as the payee name, check amount, or any other alteration that results in an unauthorized debit to your checking account. Check Fraud Protection applies to each box of checks and, therefore, is only available through your check printer.
