A LOST BANK CHECK
When a Bank Check that is drawn in favor of a definate individ
ual or firm is lost, its payment at the Bank may be stopped.
When money is lost, it is impossible to trace and recover it.
The check is the best and safest method of making payments,
as your money is safe and secure at the Bank until the check is
actually paid to the rightful person and then you have the paid
check as receipt for the money. An account subject to check
at this Bank will protect your money.
