Linked question ^^^ is WHEN. My question is HOW which is different. Also, the other question does not have an answer that addresses the question. The one answer it has, does not answer the question, so the statement below that the existing question is "Answered" is not true.
How can I determine when the bank has been paid on a deposited check. A typical bank statment about this is as follows:
Your bank also may not be able to determine that the check is fraudulent when you deposit it. Rather, your bank may learn of the problem only when the check is returned unpaid by the other bank, which may take a couple weeks or more. Scammers try to make the item look genuine, which will delay discovery of the fraud. Once the item has been returned unpaid, your bank, generally, will be able to reverse the deposit to your account and collect the amount of the deposit from you.
What I want to know is how I can I find if the check HAS BEEN PAID BY THE OTHER BANK? Basically call up my bank and ask?
(I will consider answers unresponsive if they do not answer the question: for example, going on about fraudulent checks and how to detect them, why checks do not clear, how scams work, why a check might never clear, etc. I know these things.)
