The teller who processed it just let it slip through the cracks. If he was aware of it, he would not have processed. Simply a human error, which happens often in these cases.

 

Trust me, if you made the teller aware that so and so signed this over to you and he can't verify the signature, he will not process it.

Actually, in variableResistor's scenario, that is perfectly fine. As long as both signatures are on the check, it should be good. I guess it just depends on the bank policy and it varies.

Usually bank policy requires them to verify signature right? I mean, if that's not the case, I can just sign whatever check I found on the street over to myself.

Sure, if you want to risk fraud and jail time. I recently left my position at a big name bank a few months ago where I negotiate checks all day, and sent them to the next level for processing. And I wouldve processed that check if I saw the right signatures on the back of the check.
