Fraud Prevention

Regardless of size, Fraud Control is a concern for businesses and non-profits everywhere. We're committed to helping you keep your account safe using the following tools for Checks and Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions:

Positive Pay

Positive Pay can help prevent check fraud in three easy steps:

  1. Details of the checks you issue will be uploaded to Citizens State Bank
  2. When checks are presented for payment, we’ll compare the dollar amount and check number to ensure a match
  3. If the check information doesn’t match, we’ll notify you of the exception items so you can decide if the check will be paid

Your company is a candidate for Positive Pay if:

  • Your business has experienced check fraud
  • Your company issues numerous checks
  • You're able to create a file that includes your issued check data
  • You'd feel better knowing the checks that clear your account were actually issued by you
ACH Debit Filter

Create, maintain and update a list of pre-approved ACH payments. We'll pay only the transactions you’ve expressly authorized. You can set payment rules for each account, and those rules can be vendor-specific, amount-specific, one-time, recurring or a combination. You'll have the opportunity to review, and approve, any exceptions.

ACH Debit Block

This feature completely blocks all ACH debit transactions. Any incoming ACH debit is automatically returned to the originating bank. Once you set up the service, there’s nothing more for you to do
