finger printing at banks?

I went to the bank the other day and saw a man cashing a check. He then said he needed the fingerprint pad and watched him do his fingerprint and put it on the check.Has anyone else seen this done? I thought it very strange. It was Bank of America. I am closing my account there and going to a local bank after seeing this.

Yes I have...

I know that at LEAST 8 years ago this was being done when I was trying to cash a check from a bank and I did not have an account at that bank. They SAID at the time that they wanted to make sure that someone hadn't just found the check in the street and was cashing it. Of course, none of it makes any sense as they hardly had access to the national fingerprint database........ but they have done this for a long time.
