Are drafts legal?

Bank drafts are 100% legal. They look exactly like checks, except for the signature line. You don't sign bank drafts. ChecksNet imprints Pre-authorized Draft on the signature line. All you need is permission from a person who signs on that account. Permission can be verbal or written. Best way is someone faxing their check to you. You can also record permission on your answering machine or voicemail. This complies with FTC Regulation 16 CFR 310.

You deposit bank drafts just like checks.

Mailing a signed check is MUCH more dangerous than a bank draft.
News media routinely report checks being stolen from US mailboxes. Criminals have stolen entire mailboxes from the front of post offices. Criminals easily alter checks and copy your signature to commit other crimes

More advantages of drafts. Depositing bank drafts is better than ACH (electronic transfers). There are merchant fees for doing every ACH, there are payment delays and an ACH payment can bounce for dozens of reasons. ChecksNet can be used to collect on bad checks without paying ANY collection fees. Complete details and many tips are included with ChecksNet Software.
