America's Christian Credit Union wants to insure your privacy and the safety of your account information. The following is a brief list of check  protection tips:

  • Guard your checkbook and extra (new) checks.
  • Never give your account and routing numbers to people you do not know, especially to anyone over the telephone.
  • Never use your deposit slip for "scrap" paper or notes and then give it to someone. Guard your deposit slips.
  • Properly store or dispose of canceled checks.
  • If your checkbook is lost or stolen, immediately inform us – call 1-800-343-6328
  • When traveling for a period of time, it is wise to leave your checkbook at home and locked away. Use your ATM – Debit Card – Credit Card while traveling. Always place travel notices on your account before traveling.
  • Always write checks using non-erasable ink pens, typewriters or printers - never pencil.
  • Write the dollar amount in both numbers and letters, as far to the left in the allotted space as possible and draw a line through the unused space to the right of the letters and numbers to prevent additions.
  • When writing the payee name on the "Pay to the Order of" line, make sure the name is spelled out completely (do not use abbreviations) so it cannot be altered.
  • Balance or reconcile your checkbook register when you receive your monthly bank statements.
