” Too many companies do nothing to prevent check fraud and consequently are found liable for their losses. Only when a reasonable amount of care is shown can companies apply to banks for restitution. We have a lot of laws to prevent this, but that doesn’t mean they do, Check 21 for example. Check 21 is a federal law that took effect on October 28, 2004, and gives banks and other organizations the ability to create electronic image copies of consumers’ checks, in a process known as check truncation (Kenton). This may sound reasonable, but they destroy the check right after scanning it, therefore you have no proof I changed the check from $300 to $3,000, because the check is destroyed. “
