Q: “What can your business do to combat check fraud”?

“With Positive Pay we create a proactive approach to eliminating check fraud.  Positive Pay allows you to electronically upload your check register to American Bank. We will match the items presented for payment to those issued according to your check register and only pay the checks listed to the precise specifications you indicate. Items that do not match are sent to you for verification before they clear your account.  So, you only need to look at the items that don’t match the check register.  Reduce fraud, save time and money and put yourself in control”.

 Amy Lynch, AAP, Manager - Treasury Management Services

Q: My child is 16 and has his first job. Can he open an account with the bank?

Yes, he can open a savings account to receive payroll by direct deposit and access the money in his savings account by taking a withdrawal at the bank or at an ATM with an ATM card. A savings account will also enable him to deposit and cash paper checks.
