Fraudulent ACHs

posted by on 22 May 2020

It’s important to keep an eye on your accounts. During the pandemic a bank in Bottineau, ND caught numerous deposits being entered into a customers account. Through some investigation, it was discovered that these deposits were from multiple different states and under different names than the account holder. Keeping a watchful eye on your account will help mitigate these mistakes or fraudulent attempts faster. As the account holder, you have the ability to refuse an Automated Clearing House (ACH) entering your account.

It is important to be mindful of the credits and debits occurring in your accounts and never hesitate to ask questions or visit with your local bank representative.
