How To Avoid Check Washing Fraud

Check washing is a scam in which criminals use chemical alteration processes to remove or modify details from checks to make fraudulent withdrawals from victims’ accounts. In most cases, fraudsters modify handwritten details such as names and dates, but they may erase information on the entire check in other cases. 
For instance, imagine a check is written for $200 to an electric company and deposited in the mailbox for payment. A criminal then hacks the victim’s mailbox, steals the check, and use chemicals to erase details from the check. At that point, the check is considered rewritten. 
Consider the following tips to reduce the possibility of falling victim to check washing:
  • Only use secured mailboxes when mailing checks
  • Use secure ink dispensed from a gel, rollerball, or fountain pen
  • Do not leave any lines blank on a check
  • Review your account statements carefully
  • Use SCCU’s free Bill Payer service to have payments processed on your behalf
We strongly recommend applying caution when disclosing personal information to reduce the risk of being victimized.
