check kiting

  

Definition

Fraudulent scheme in which checks are issued against funds that a bank has credited into an account for deposited but uncleared checks (see check clearing). In effect, it is like an interest free and unauthorized loan which, with careful timing of deposits and withdrawals, can be turned into a large sum. It differs from 'playing float,' because in reality no funds exist. Also called kiting.
