On 8/13/2009 I received my Social Security Check and went to the Walmart located in Chamblee Georgia. When I tried to cash my Social Security Check (it was issued from the local office because the check never arrived in the mail and I needed it to pay my electric bill before it was shut off) I was denied, and the written reason on the slip is reason 2, which, after talking to the Federal Trade Commission, is not a valid reason, as required under the FCRA. I was told to call Certegy, which I did in the store, and I was informed that the reason the refused to cash the check, was because it did not fit into their computerized models.
I have checked with the Attorney General of Georgia's Office and found that under Georgia Law, it is illegal to refuse a government check, unless the check appears to have been altered. This check was issued at the local office, and was not altered in any way, shape and/or form, so I have forwarded a copy of the check to the Attorney General's Office, US Attorney's Office for Georgia, and the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance for prosecution. [continued below]....
I intend to sue Certegy and Walmart for not only violating the FCRA, by not stating a reason but for undue hardship for me needing to go out of my way to cash the Social Security Check, since I have a heart condition, and it was almost 100 degrees out side.
