Affidavit of Fraud Forgery Form for Checks

Answered by: 

Question: 
I was asked today, on our bank's affidavit of fraud and forgery form for checks that have been cashed fraudulently, why we require it to be notarized. Is this required? The people who created the form and implemented it are no longer here. We are trying to figure out if a customer has check fraud, on our form that customers sign, does the bank have to have a section so it is notarized?
Answer: 

It is not much of a affidavit if it is not notarized, as in most jurisdictions, it could never be entered as evidence in a court of law. Before removing the notary requirement, you need to sit down with your legal counsel.
