    Check your checking accounts often....We found out a former employee was using our checking account number to pay their $238.00 Sprint bill, their $220.00 gas and electric bill, and $457.00 to Visa.............

    They weren't very stealthy or maybe just stupid as we were able to track down who it was because they used their current address and phone number to these telephone check authorizations. All they needed was our checking account number from an old payroll check we had given them. Needless to say we corrected the situation but we had to close out our account and open a new one, then alert all our creditors with whom we had outstanding payments sent to........What a mess.

    They actually used a business account? I can understand trying it with a personal account but they sure must be some dumb crooks.

    Yes they used our business account, good thing we check everyday and caught it in time, we would have had more problems to contend with than just closong the account. All they did was change a few of the check numbers but kept the checking account and bank router numbers the same.
