So what do you think? Deposit an unsigned check?

Received a check from a client today, but he neglected to sign it. I'm sure it was just an oversight because he's among the fastest payers of all my clients and has thrown me work in the past. Do I pretend I didn't notice and just deposit it as usual or could it be rejected? Do I call him and ask him to send another and I'll destroy this one? Does it make a difference as far as the bank is concerned?

Comments? (FWIW, it's only for a few hundred dollars.)

I'd call him. I don't think the bank will accept it.

Definitely call him, because banks can get really nasty about checks that don't clear. Your bank might accept it for a deposit, but his bank may not honor it. If that happened, you could wind up with a chargeback fee.

Thanks. I''ll call him and/or mail it back to him with a little note.

At our bank, the tellers are pretty good at picking up things like that. They wouldn't accept it. As AlphaDog says, if you deposit it at an ATM, it'll get bounced and likely as not you'll get charged.
