    Is it dangerous to deposit a check into your bank account

    I got a couple random small amount checks in the mail. Is it dangerous to deposit a check into your bank account? Can they siphon out money once the check is deposited? I know if you give the routing and aba number and account number you can be penniless. I am worried that these checks (of which I have no idea) with commit me to some thing that auto bills with recurring billing or something of that sort.

    Some charities and even private companies send out small checks as a promotional device.

    They may even be good, but I have erred on the side of caution when ever one shows up in the mail.

    That said, I haven't heard of anyone being ripped off by them, but my recommendation is to chuck 'em.
