We had a problem with one employee at the store recently. She processed check payments but she mistakenly typed the amount twice. As what the auditor’s report showed, the amount paid and validated did not matched with the amount written in figures on the check. The employee have done the error twice. The manager warned her twice too. I heard that when she do it again the third time, she will be out. It is going to be sad. I hope she learns this time.
So be careful in accepting check for payment. Always double check the amount paid against the written amount on the check. Also, look for security marks on checks too.
