AIDS TO PROPER MAILING
|Know Your Endorser|
The United States Secret Service has launched a "KNOW YOUR ENDORSER" campaign against check forgery to supplement its highly successful "KNOW YOUR MONEY" drive, which, over a period of six years, reduced the amount of counterfeit money in circulation by more than 97 per cent. We can all cooperate in this long-pull educational program and thus eliminate the market for forged checks by making it dangerous and unprofitable for forgers to operate. Here are a few simple rules for those who cash checks and those who get them cashed.
If You Cash Checks for Others
1. DEMAND PROPER IDENTIFICATION. Remember
that lodge cards, Social Security cards, auto licenses,
letters and the like can be forged and stolen. A forger's
credentials are often forgeries themselves. Proper
identification can best be determined by asking yourself
this guestlon: "IF THIS CHECK IS RETURNED,
CAN I FIND THE PERSON WHO GAVE IT TO ME?"
If You Get Checks Cashed
1. BE SURE some member of the family is at home
when checks are due to be delivered. Get the check
as soon as it arrives.
