Online scams attract a lot of attention these days, but bogus paper checks are still a big problem. That's where Positive Pay comes in. By closely inspecting all checks submitted for deposit, Shore United Bank can spot fraud attempts, prevent costly losses, and protect your bottom line.

How Positive Pay works

  1. Your company imports a file containing the checks issued prior to distributing.
  2. When checks are presented, they're electronically compared against your file to see whether the checks are fraudulent or not.
  3. These checks are reported to you through your online banking inbox, and a decision would need to be made whether to pay or not pay the item.

Additional fees may apply for this service. Contact us at 443-262-9310 to sign up or learn more about Positive Pay.
