Many v people when paying a bill by check are under the impression that the cancelled check will act as a receipt and be accepted in court as proof that the indebtedness has been paid. This is erroneous, as was de termined by a court decision where the drawer of the check had to pay the account, again. It developed that nothing appeared either on the check or the stub to show for what purpose the check was given. The easiest way for a person to protect himself when paying by check is to indicate on the face of the check the amount and date of the invoices in payment of which it Is given, or if given as payment on account it is merely necessary to write the words "on account" With such additions there is little likelihood' that people will be made to pay invoices twice or be harrassed by a law' suit Olivet College toContinue.
