Criminal Alerts !|
We receive numerous orders from thieves because our software and supplies make checks and bank drafts. Therefore, we carefully verify bank and ID inforrmation on new customers BEFORE we deliver. We do this to protect people and businesses from becoming victims of financial crimes and ID theft through the misuse of ChecksNet Software, ChecksForms or printers with CheckToner MICR (magnetic) toner cartridges. Criminals have used our CheckToner MICR cartridges to print checks and then returned used cartridges (sometimes completely empty) to us in their attempt to get a refund. We also track all downloads of our software to prevent illegal use by unlicensed individuals or businesses.
ATTENTION CRIMINALS: We work with law enforcement to set up "stings" to help catch YOU !
We've assisted local police, state agencies, Secret Service, F.B.I. & I.R.S. in capture & conviction.
Congratulations to the LAPD for arresting 2 suspects within 8 hours after we reported an illegal transaction.
Why criminals target ChecksNet
Our products have been sold worldwide through many major retailers so we're easy to find. Our products and clients makes us as attractive to criminals as we are to legitimate banks, businesses and government agencies.
How we catch criminals using stolen bank information
Thanks in part to criminals, we developed our Banks Database which allows us to verify funds & other account information in the USA and Canada. Criminals may think the Privacy Act will stop us from verifying account information. However, we CAN obtain the information by using our database. When we detect fraud we inform the bank and contact appropriate law enforcement agencies. In many cases, we successfully locate the victim of Identity theft to inform them and help catch the suspect(s).
We catch criminals who used our CheckToner MICR cartridges
All our CheckToner MICR cartridges are marked several ways for identification and specially packaged so we can detect any tampering, We do not offer refunds on any opened or used toner cartridges.
We post names, phone numbers email addresses and other information about suspects for 4 reasons:
1. Search engines will index the names & other information which may lead to their arrest.
2. Law enforcement agents may recognize one or more names which can help solve a case.
3. Criminals will see this before attempting to purchase ChecksNet using stolen ID and/or bank information.
4. Internet & email service providers may see this and suspend service to the person(s) behind the email addresses.
NOTICE TO BANKS & CREDIT UNIONS: We report incidents where someone attempts to place an order using ID that does not match bank account information. We appreciate your cooperation when we call to verify funds & account information.
NOTICE TO ALL BUSINESSES: Do not trust cellphone numbers as positive ID. Cellular number & persons name can be ported (moved to another cellphone) without the immediate knowledge of the real owner. If you rely on caller ID, insist on contacting your customer ONLY at their home or verifiable place of employment.
NOTICE TO CRIMINALS: On 7/15/04 President Bush signed a federal law which imposes MANDATORY PRISON TIME for all ID theft crimes. Details.
