This article focuses on loopholes in accounts receivable conversion (ARC). Accounts receivable conversion (ARC), which converts consumer checks to electronic transactions through the automated clearing house network (ACH), has emerged as the fastest growing payment application in ACH's history, due to its speed and lower expense versus paper. The National Automated Clearing House Association says more than 1.25 billion transactions were processed via ARC in 2004, an almost 500 percent growth rates.
