Fraud exists in all kinds of accounts; forged drawers’ signatures and forged endorsements, constitute the most common types of fraud, together accounting for about 33 percent of losses. Other major forms of fraud include new account fraud, checks written against closed accounts or insufficient funds, and counterfeit checks.

The explosion in electronic payments in recent years has created opportunities for significant processing efficiencies, faster clearance of payments, and incentives for the development of new technologies that provide an increasing number of consumers with the option to make electronic transfers of funds.

Deposit Account Fraud Protection contains the information you need to protect your institution’s deposit accounts from check fraud and electronic fraud. No other book covers all the relevant compliance and legal issues for all forms of negotiable instruments the way it does. The focus is on taking the right steps to help your financial institution avoid potential liability, so you’ll find useful tools like:

•  Tested, proven internal procedures for reducing your exposure to check and electronic fraud.
•  Training materials, including tips, guidance, and discussion points at the end of each chapter to ensure your staff knows how to identify and handle potential deposit account fraud.
