I work for a county government. We process over 16,000 checks over about 2 months. I have an issue with some things we do. If someone writes a check out wrong, for example if he doesn't put the correct change in either the box or Written Out, we have to change it.
If someone writes in the box 285.00 but Written says eighty five 00/100 my boss will make us write it in ourselves.
I don't feel comfortable changing someone else's check. I just want to find out whether this is legal to do or not.
