( Retail : Customer accounts )
The credit agency offers a check verification service for merchants, designed to expedite the processing and handling of checks
and reduce fraud.
Check verification isn't possible across international borders, so it makes sense to insist on travelers'
checks or some other form of payment.
Check verification is a system that checks national databases of information about individuals to make
sure that checks will be honored and fraud is not being committed.
