Word of the Week - CHEQUE KITTING

 [The secured creditor bank] says that the Debtor and its related corporation ... (the “Related Party”) were involved in a scheme [similar to the commonly known scheme of “cheque kitting”] whereby cheques drawn against the [bank] account were matched by fictitious deposits of cheques drawn on the Related Party's account. The result was that [the bank] honoured cheques for payment out of the [bank] account when such were not covered by sufficient funds on deposit.
