SunCorp Intro's DEPOSIT CHEK

DENVER-SunCorp has launched a new product to fight fraud and is now offering DEPOSIT CHEK to its membership.

The $2.9-billion corporate said the decision follows discussions with member credit unions on the best course of action. Under the program, financial institutions share account information on a daily basis that is maintained and safeguarded as part of the National Shared Databases.

The databases contain information on account status, stop payments, negative accounts, counterfeit items and final return-item decisions. Each morning, SunCorp said, it will create a file of all checks deposited the previous day and provide credit unions with a report on the status of each deposit on a secure internet site.
