Tips to Use When Accepting a Check
1. DATE Checks must be dated on the same date that they are written. Postdated checks cannot be prosecuted. 2. SIGNATURE Do not accept checks that are already signed. Check writer should sign the check in your presence. Signature should match the printed name on the check. 3. COMPLETE ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE NUMBERS This information will assist you in locating and notifying the check writer if the check is worthless. P.O. Box addresses are not adequate. 4. CONFIRM IDENTITY It is essential that you obtain valid picture ID (drivers license or ID card) from the check writer. Verify that the ID matches the check writer. Record the ID number, race, sex and date of birth from the ID. 5. WRITTEN AMOUNTS AND NUMBERS MUST CORRESPOND Checks with discrepancies in amounts can not be prosecuted. 6. IDENTIFY WHO ACCEPTED THE CHECK The clerk who accepts the check should write their initials on the check. It is essential that we have a witness to prove the identity of the check writer in court.
