Don’t Be Tricked by Special Wording on Checks!

debt collection Michigan

Don’t sign below the endorsement line unless you want to accept the check in full settlement. Although you may be tempted to endorse the check and deposit it, if you’re owed $1000 and you only received half of the amount, you could cost yourself the outstanding balance.

Debt collection Michigan

You probably never considered a check to be two-dimensional. It’s just a piece of paper, and all that matters is that the information is filled out on the face of the check, right? Not so fast!

“Paid in full”

“In full settlement”

“Full and final payment”
