Check Fraud Control

Protect your company from fraud by monitoring against suspicious check activity through Positive Pay services. Positive Pay identifies fraudulent items before a payment is issued to help you to reduce the risk of financial loss and minimize disruption to your business. 

Here's how it works: 

  • Each time you issue checks, you send an electronic file to TowneBank. The file contains individual check serial numbers and amounts
  • TowneBank builds a register from the file you send and compares it to every check presented for payment against the file
  • If any check’s serial number and amount do not match the file you sent, the check is presented as a possible fraudulent item through Business Online Banking for you to make a pay or return decision

Check Fraud Control Benefits

  • Detect suspicious check activity
  • Expedite identification of fraudulent activity
  • Quickly flag items and easily determine whether to make the payment or return the check

ACH Fraud Control

Implement ACH Block or ACH Control to protect your company from un-authorized ACH debits from posting to your account or to reject unauthorized debit transactions from occurring. 

  • ACH Block - returns all ACH debits attempting to post to an ACH blocked account. The rejection is automatic, reducing clerical time and saving money. 
  • ACH Control - reject unauthorized ACH debit transactions based upon your list of designated originators using ACH controls. This is useful for accounts that require taxes, payroll, or other pre-authorized debits.
