Protect yourself from Cheque Fraud

  • Draw a line through all unused space after both the payee’s name and the amount.
  • If you make an error, sign against any corrections or destroy the cheque and write another.
  • Never sign a cheque and leave the payee blank.
  • Never accept a cheque from someone unless you know and trust them. Be especially wary when accepting a high–value cheque; for instance if you are selling a car.
