31 31 THE PROBLEM

32 32 TWO CHECK CLOSE “I NEVER GET BAD CHECKS.” “Can you tell which of these two checks was printed on a computer and is counterfeit?” “NO” “Our check reader will stop the counterfeiters cold. It will not read a counterfeit check. If you never accept the check you can’t have a counterfeit check loss. One or two of those a year can be very costly.”

33 33 TWO CHECK CLOSE “I ONLY TAKE LOCAL CHECKS.” “Can you tell which of these two checks is written on a closed account and is fraudulent?” “NO” “Many times when a check writer is going to move they will close their account, write some checks and be gone before they bounce. We can stop this before it happens. We know 15 million bad check writers and will share that information with you. A few checks on a closed account can be very costly.”

34 34 LOST SALE CLOSE “I DON’T TAKE CHECKS.” “Restrictive check policies result in lost business. In fact…(turn to page 23 and review). The increase in business through unrestrictive check policies will result in a big increase in business.”
