Check (bank cheque, british) Vs Check (to correct)
Is this statement correct in american english:
The bank manager checked the check and found the check us illegal.
Sanjay's rewritten sentence is excellent. In the US, we might say that he checked the check. There is nothing grammatically wrong with that. But when reading, it tends to be less interesting when the same word is used over and over. Using a different verb for the action of checking (examined) and then replacing the second noun with a pronoun (it) takes care of that problem. Ending the sentence with to be fraudulent is a good choice as well. Illegal is a very broad term and fraud is the type of crime one would commit with a check/cheque.
