Check Fraud Prevention and Check Fraud Security Features

  • Microprinting on the front, back or signature line of a check. The micro print is very small type in the check border and the back of the check signature line. This microprint can only be read with a magnifying glass. When a person attempts to commit check fraud by copying or scanning the check,  the microprint text becomes a solid line. You bank can look at your business check and see the microprint text no longer exists. 
  • Micr Band creates a clear zone for the micr line on your check. The banking community has requested a clear space to be added for the MICR check line. This Micr Band appears as a space between the bottom of the pantograph and the bottom of the check. The Micr Band allows for a lower reject rate when your bank scans your micr check.
  • Micr target alignment box added to position 43 of the Micr area for guidance in printing the bank routing transit number on your business check.
  • Artificial Watermarks are subtly printed logos or words which can be viewed at a 45 degree angle. This check fraud prevention technique is designed to defeat the person using a copier or scanner on your business check. Copiers and scanners are designed to capture images at 90 degree angles. A 45 degree angle watermark may not be reproduced by copying or scanning. You bank can review your laser check and notice the inclusion or absence of the watermark.
  • Warning Box on back of the check lists the check's security features and describes how to detect fraud and alterations.
  • Security Screen with the words "original document" on the back of  your check stock. The words Original Document� are offset against a grey background. This offset print makes it difficult to copy or scan your laser business check.
  • Pantograph in you check stock background complicates alteration and unauthorized reproduction. Our Pantograph is designed to make our blank laser check and business check difficult for the forger to alter and copy.
  • Erasure Protection - When areas on the front of your business check are erased, the colored pantograph becomes white. Our pantograph may defeat the person looking to commit check fraud on your laser check by a manual erasure process.
  • Void Pantograph - If your laser generated business check is photocopied the word void appears on the copied check. The face of this blank check document contains a colored background without the word Void. Once copied or scanned, the word Void appears on the fraudulent check. Unfortunately, some of the newer model copiers can now defeat the void pantograph. A knowledgeable individual can adjust a new generation copier to the specific attributes of your business check.
  • Invisible and Fluorescent Fibers are imbedded in your business check and can only be seen under a black light. These fibers are only visible under an ultraviolet light. A fraudulent check will not contain these invisible fibers. All banks now scan checks under ultraviolet light before processing for payment.
  • Chemical Reactive Paper shows stains or spots when an attempt is made to remove the check information with chemical ink eradicators or manual erasure. When "washing" a check to commit check fraud, the most common acetate used is fingernail polish remover. Using our chemical reactive paper for your business check and blank laser check may defeat those people looking to alter your checks by chemical means.
