Writing Numbers in Words
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Take a good look at a bank check. Notice all the information on it. Notice there are words and numbers. There are even numbers written in words!
 
2     On the second line of a check, the number amount is written in words. Why do you have to do this? It's for security.
 
3     Think about it. Let's say you wrote a check to someone for $6.11. If you only write the numbers on the check, they can be easily changed. Someone could write a 1 in front of the 6. He or she could even put a 9 there. A person could cash the check for much more than the amount you wrote it for.
 
4     If there was room, they could add many numbers to the front. They could make it $9,256.11! And guess where the money would come from to pay the check? That's right - your checking account!
