I’m a self-employed contractor. Sometimes I will get a check from a client and take it to their bank to cash it, instead of depositing it in my own bank.
For anyone who doesn’t know the drill: You’re always required to hand over your drivers license or other ID, sometimes along with a second piece of ID (eg credit card.) Once the check is deemed good, they want your fingerprint on the front of the check. Some banks also make a copy of your ID, and some ask for a phone number, which is written on the back of the check under your signature.
So, the teller types my drivers license number (presumably) into the system. This is followed by a flurry of other clicking and typing, while the teller watches whatever comes up on the screen. The s/he says thanks hands the ID back, finishes the transaction and hands over the cash.
My question is: What information relevant to my ID comes up on the teller’s screen?
