IllinoisIDThe Importance of Verified Identification

Being able to actually identify a check writer can be critical in prosecuting a bad check case. If a check case ends up in court, the person who accepts the check must be able to identify the check writer.

This requires some measure of proof. Reasonable proof can be:

  1. The person accepting the check verified identity using Photo ID
  2. The person accepting the check personally knows the check writer.  

The person who accepts the check MUST be noted
and should put their initials or employee number on the check.
