Government Checks Must be Deposited

Some paychecks this season, purportedly issued by the Government, will be rejected by tellers, warns the Executive Director the Honduran Association of Banking Institutions (Ahiba), María Lidia Soriano.

The Central Bank of Honduras (BCH) has warned of forgeries; consequently, the national banks have determined that the funds allegedly issued from the government must be deposited into an account, pending verification of the document.

“There are small, specific cases were some checks are circulating that are counterfeit,” said Soriano. Therefore, “The safest way is that they deposit it into their account.”

BCH will later determine if the check is fraudulent or real, and if valid, the funds will be credited to the client’s account.
