Do the embassies cross check your bank statement with the Bank for tourist Schengen visa?

Need some lights on the question above. And what if you send some money from your account after submitting the bank statement to the embassy? Thanks :)

    Normally the Embassy takes the bank statement as reliable, that is why they ask for original bank statements preferably over the last 6 months as this provides an insight into your finances. If the embassy has doubts they can make verification checks with your bank. So I would not send any money from your account until you have your visa.
