FAQ 1 – What is Positive Pay and How does it Work?
video-icon
Positive Pay is an automated check matching service offered by many banks. This is the way it works: Every day that you issue checks, you transmit to your bank a list of all the checks you issued. This is essentially a pre-approved list of checks you have authorized the bank to pay. As the checks you issued are presented to your bank for payment, they are matched up against your pre-approved list. If a check is presented for payment against your account that is not on the list, or if the check does not exactly match the information that you sent the bank, it is kicked out by the bank as an "Exception item." You have an opportunity to review those exception items and decide to pay or return the check.

Both Frank Abagnale and SAFEChecks strongly endorse using Positive Pay with your bank. Most banks charge a monthly fee for Positive Pay. Consider that fee as an insurance payment against check fraud. Positive Pay and High Security checks are your first line of defense against check fraud.
FAQ 2 – Who is Frank Abagnale?

Frank Abagnale is one of the world’s most respected authorities on the subjects of check fraud, identity theft, and secure documents. For over 35 years, he has consulted with and lectured to hundreds of financial institutions, corporations, law enforcement agencies, and government institutions around the world, including the FBI. More than 14,000 organizations use his fraud prevention ideas and programs.

Mr. Abagnale is author of the book and subject of the Steven Spielberg blockbuster movie, Catch Me If You Can, that starred Leonard DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Few people know that Frank Abagnale himself played the role of the French Police Captain that put the cuffs on DiCaprio. The movie was also made into a Tony-award winning Broadway musical.

Mr. Abagnale designed the SuperBusinessCheck for SAFEChecks. The SuperBusinessCheck has never been replicated nor has it ever been used in a check fraud scam. To this day, checks designed by Frank Abagnale are still the most advanced and secure means for preventing check fraud.
FAQ 3 – How Do I Place A Secure Check Order with SAFEChecks (and Why Can’t I Order Checks Online)?

Ordering checks online is an anonymous process that makes it easy for criminals to get original checks and commit check fraud against companies and individuals. When you purchase checks from companies that allow online ordering it puts you at risk.

To order checks from SAFEChecks, simply fill out an order form and send it and an original voided check to us. For personal checks, you will also need to include a voided deposit slip. An order form can be downloaded from the SAFEChecks' website and filled out on your computer. You can also give us a call at (800) 755-2265. A SAFEChecks Fraud Advisor will walk you through the steps to place your order.

It is safe, simple, and secure. Just give us a call at (800) 755-2265, or download an order form.
