Automated Clearinghouses (ACH) are a popular means of financial transactions, as they substitute actual physical paper documents such as cards and checks.

However, like all other technology-dependent systems; ACH’s bring their own disadvantages. Like all other modes of technological payment methods; ACH’s are prone to a variety of frauds. All that it takes to breach and impugn the systems is some smartness and knowledge of the ways in which they work within organizations or networks. Since ACH’s house almost all kinds of transactions; embezzlement into their systems can typically affect all kinds of payment methods and accounts, ranging from hacking and taking over entire individual accounts to penetration of accounts of business houses.

Companies that deal with ACH’s in one or another form –and there is no dearth of these –need to be constantly on their vigil if they have to prevent large-scale of small-scale swindling of their accounts. Their transactions need to be tightened and made as secure as possible if they have to prevent frauds.
