I'm sure everything will be fine, whatever you do. Most companies to whom I send checks - phone, cable, credit cards, etc. - tell you to write your account number on the check. They usually even give you a reminder on the back of the envelope - "Have you written your account number on your check?" Their stated reason for asking that you do this is that in case the bill and check get separated, they can still associate the check with the proper account, and give you credit. Early on I did as they asked, but about 20 years ago I decided that this was just completely bogus. If they open up an envelope, pull out a check and invoice, and say, "Now I wonder what this check goes with?" - then they're beyond help. So I stopped writing account numbers on checks - again, I started doing this about 20 years ago. I've never had a problem of any kind.Of course, the one exception I make to this rule is a payment to the IRS. I don't take any chances with that one, and write on the check exactly what they ask.Lorenzo, sometimes a little rebelious...
