A. Here are some tips:
- Flatten folded or crumpled checks before taking the photo.
- Place the check on a solid dark background, take the photo in a well-lit area, and try on to get too much of the areas surrounding the check.
- Keep the check within the viewfinder on the camera screen when capturing photos.
- Hold the camera as square to the check as possible to reduce corner to corner skew.
- Make sure the entire check image is visible and in focus, with no shadows.
- All four corners of the check should be visible.
Q. What happens if I mistakenly deposit a check a second time?
A. Our systems are equipped to alert us when a check is presented as a duplicate. Croghan will reverse your deposit and a Branch employee will contact you to discuss.
