Implement a fraud prevention strategy with powerful TowneBank tools to reduce the risks of both unauthorized payment origination from your account and unauthorized debits posting to your account.

ACH Fraud Prevention

If you use ACH or traditional paper checks, your transactions could be at risk. Protect yourself from loss because of fraudulent activities and theft with TowneBank ACH Fraud Control and Check Fraud Protection services. Your experienced and knowledgeable Treasury team can help you find and implement the right protection solutions for your business. You can access these powerful tools through Business Online Banking. 

Here’s how ACH Fraud Prevention works:

  • Control the ACH approval process with custom approval levels to fit the way your company operates
  • ​Assign user access permissions for your employees
  • Monitor both ACH payables and receivables 
  • ​Create ACH processing rules to fit your business

Review and approve payments before they are finalized with Positive Pay services for ACH transfers and check transactions. This minimizes the chance of fraudulent activity impacting your account. You can also assign user permission levels for staff, which helps you control payment approval.
