You have to take steps to help ensure your business is protected from cheque fraud. Without preventative measures in place, you are at the mercy of criminals who look for easy targets. They often get a feel for how things are going to play out, so make sure they can’t easily get money from you and then you are left wondering how this happened!
You also have to prevent cheque fraud from happening inside of your own business by one of your employees or a clever thieve. Don’t leave blank checks where they could easily be stolen by anyone. There should be a check and balance system in place too where cheque numbers are always accounted for by at least two people. This ensures any cheque that may be unaccounted for can have a stop payment on it and even reported to law enforcement.
