Check to see if the routing number belongs to the bank. Call the bank, give them the account number and ask them if it is legal. If you have one of their banks in your town visit them. There is no way actually to know until several weeks later after you deposit it. Were you expecting a check from them? Why would you 
receive a check from them. If you have doubts deposit it to a new account and leave it for 2-3 months after you speak with the bank. Remember there are charges for checks that come back to you for any reason.
