    the numbers identify what bank account was from, check number, amount, and the account number where the money was transferred to, including date and authorization number, all is done electronically these days and they have to scan all the checks due to regulations, that's why you see the copy on your statement online.

    there are many numbers on the back of it, once you deposit it it goes to several banks I had to track down a money order one time and it had gone to at least 3 different banks before it finally went to the place I sent it. these banks can not tell you anything except that it passed through and account at their bank, or was deposited .
