Answer #1

In any case CCCC is not entittled to get the money for a check which is unindorsed by the drawee. Endorsement is required for passing of a check. It is the ignorence happened from the CCCC without passing a check bearing a signature of the drawee. CCCC is entitled to get the money only from the theef if they have power in their hands or by filing a police complaint. Police also realy unable to get back the money from the theef because it is a real ignorence happened from the passing official. He or anyone has no right to pass a check not bearing a signature ie: unindorsed check. CCCC can recover that money from their staff who has made a payment for an unindorsed check.
