    I've been noticing some recent letters from banks that appear to be advertising, but then on the second page at the bottom, I see attached a few real checks with my name, info, and account number.

    These can be VERY easily mistaken for junk mail, and thrown out by people without shredding them first.

    Who the hell designed them like this?

    PSA: look at your mail more carefully, and look at EVERY page front and back

    Yeah, my credit card company sometimes sends me those types of mailings with checks included for cash advances. I just shred them immediately.

    I believe you can request that your bank no longer send those to you. I would look into that.

    I believe the solicitations included with a billing or account statement are typically called 'inserts'.
    I agree, you should be able to have your inserts turned off by calling your financial institution.

    I'm almost completely e-bill and e-statements.
