Hantz Bank cashier’s checks are being fraudulently created and used in a scam. The scam involves a consumer being hired as a “secret shopper” for Walmart through a fake Walmart website at http://postedjobs.org . Walmart does not use a secret shopper program (see information on scams on Walmart.com) and has no relationship with Hantz Bank. If you are presented a cashier’s check purported to be from Hantz Bank, please contact us at 248-304-3500 and we will be able to verify the validity of the check.
Effective July 1, 2018 any items to be deposited through the mobile capture system must have the following indorsement on the back of the check in addition to the required signature(s):
“For mobile deposit to Hantz Bank”
Users of the system that do not include the indorsement on their items will receive an email informing them of the missing information and asking them to correct and then resubmit the item.
