Did you deposit it at an ATM or with a teller?

Do you you have a receipt of deposit?

You should be fine. Worst case scenario you have to talk to your bank.

They will send you the check back if they catch it in processing which is very likely to happen, considering that endorsement is very important. What I will often do though if checks are not signed is stamp them with a stamp that basically says "pay to the order of the payee". I am guessing they will check your account and make sure that the name on the check matches the name on your account then stamp it. One of those three things will happen depending on your banks policy.

Nothing will happen. The bank will stamp the back of the check with "FOR DEPOSIT ONLY" and it will clear. Nothing to worry about. Only to worry if its a check from the govt or state. Sometimes those can get returned by item processing.

If you deposited the check into your account, and you never signed the check or wrote your account number on the back of the check, i would go first thing monday, with your receipt to the bank and see if the money is there. If it is, i wouldnt worry about it. If it is not, RAISE HELL.

No, your not in trouble. If anyone is at fault, it;s the teller for not picking up on this. Just go monday and talk to a manager and see what they say, but make sure you have your receipt.

If you have all of that **** then you're fine.

Go pour yourself a drink, roll up a joint, or do whatever it is you do to relax.

Then do it some more.

Don't worry i did that same thing a week ago with a check my friend made out to me.

The only thing that happened was my bank called my friend to confirm that he wrote the check out to me and that was it. I didnt even know i forgot to endorce the check until my friend told me my bank called him.

For ATMs as far as I know you could make out the check to Osama Bin Laden, sign it with happy faces and as long the money is there nothing gets a second look. It's only when people ask questions/dispute things that this stuff even matters.

edit: I live in canada though and there are only 5 major banks and the banking systems are highly automated so what do I know. Click the image to open in full size.

Yeah, that wouldn't fly here. I work at a bank and we are pretty strict about crap like that (checks made out to different people being deposited into someone else's account).
