Protect Yourself from Check Fraud II

Do not have your driver's license number preprinted on your checks. If your checkbook is stolen, it's very easy for the con artist to tell the cashier that they lost the driver's license, noting that it is on the check. This will then put your driver's license number on a bad check list with merchants (TeleCheck, etc), in addition to the financial problems associated with these checks going through your bank.
