Thumbprint 

 

MBA member banks, law enforcement and merchants can participate in the low cost Thumbprint Signature Program using Thumbprint Signature touch pads. The touch pad is intended to deter counterfeit and stolen check fraud by obtaining a Thumbprint signature, a fingerprint, from non-customers (customers who do not have a depository relationship with the institution) when cashing on-us and not-on-us checks. The Thumbprint Signature can be used by law enforcement agencies in the investigation of fraud claims made by account holders, and financial institution's usage of the program is a natural deterrent. Participating institutions, agencies and merchants will not retain the Thumbprint Signature in their files and the signature will be shared with law enforcement officials only in cases of suspected fraud. Supplies for the program include the touch pads, notification tent cards, and window decals. We provide all the information and sample letters.
