Paper checks need to travel to the payee from the writer or check printing companies.
The biggest issue in check mailing is to ensure that it does not land in the wrong hands, and the measures to increase mailed check security include:
Delivery at a safe location: Reduce insecurity incidences to your check by dropping it at the post office or handing it to uniformed mail carriers. Do not leave check mail on the front porch or the building entryway.
Track the mail: Use certified mail with tracking services to ensure the check gets to the right person. The payee collects the check mail in person and sign for the delivery.
Restrict the check: Include the payee’s name on the payment line to make it safe when mailed. Make it more secure by including the account number to deposit the check on the endorsement area to make it hard for any other person to cash the check. If the check mail gets lost or stolen, any other person cannot cash it without leaving a record of the bank account used.
Hide the check: Make the check mail appear like standard letters. You can fold the check slip with a thick piece of paper to make the contents invisible. You can disguise the check inside a greeting card because they rarely get misplaced and not opened by mailing staff.
Double-check the address: Save yourself stress in the future by cross-checking the recipient’s address before mailing. You may place the check inside the wrong envelope or send it to an incorrect address.
