What exposure or liability would a bank have if a positive pay product is offered, but does not offer payee match?

If a customer is enrolled in Positive Pay, and we pay a check where the date, dollar amount, and check serial number match the company's file, but the payee doesn't...do we have liability? If a counterfeit item, is the bank liable to pay?

These are questions best put to an attorney, since they will require a review of your bank's Positive Pay agreement(s) and your processes.
