In Waterford Bank’s Treasury Management Department, your safety and convenience are our top concerns. That’s why we offer fraud protection tools that provide top of the line security with minimal effort from your business. Learn how you can save time and money with Positive Pay and ACH filters.
Here’s how they work.
What is Positive Pay?
Check Positive Pay is an automated tool that flags potential fraud by matching the issued payee, dollar amount, and check number of a payment with a list of previously authorized checks.
Waterford clients are simply able to upload a file that provides all the required information from each check issued. The system then compares that data with the check presented to look for any discrepancies.
If the issued payee, amount, or check number don’t match up, it becomes an “exception.”
From there, you can review and determine if the check is valid, allowing the payment to go through, or if the check is invalid, in which case you can “return” it.
What is an ACH filter?
With an ACH filter, you can allow routine authorized debit transactions to pass-through your account hassle free.
However, when a new ACH debit hits your company’s account, the filter creates an “exception.”
When you need to review these “exception” items, a daily email is sent to you, instructing you to pay or return the flagged transactions.
Next Steps for Fraud Protection
Having these fraud protection services in place ensures your funds are protected and gives you convenient control over the items clearing your account.
