UltraViolet light scanning
Cheques are very a common means of payment, but they are not emitted by central Banks, and the degree of compliance with centralised standards varies amongst different countries. Even if magnetic printing is present and functional, it is a widely accessible technology and, alone, does not grant any acceptable level of protection against fraud.
The approach to protect either the cheque stock itself and/or the layout's sensitive areas (amount, payee, signature) is very logical: a special ink that reacts to UltraViolet light can be used on the surface as a coating or embedded in the paper fiber. Then, UV cameras can be easily integrated into a cheque scanner to leverage such ink.
