This is just a bit of a tip. One of the newest scams going on is Check washing. Thieves get a hold of your check and "wash" it by simply dipping it into a bath of acetone. The acetone eats away the ink, they then let the check dry and fill it out payable to them. However check washing is easy to prevent with a trip to your local Office Depot or business supply store. Uni-Ball makes a pen that uses ink that cannot be washed, just look for the one that says "helps prevent check fraud"

You are welcome. By the way the pen that is wash-proof is the Uniball 207
