If a payee claims that the signature on a University check is not his/hers, the payee must fill out an Affidavit of Check Forgery and send it to Financial Management Services. Copies will be sent to the IU Police Department and to Internal Audit. This form must be notarized.
Financial Management Services will submit the notarized affidavit and check to the bank upon which it was drawn. When reimbursement occurs from the bank, an authorization is sent to Financial Management Services for a replacement check.
