What has happened to the Justice for all attitude of our American Court System? Why isn't something done about people who knowingly set out to ruin lives and reputations?
Recently I wrote three checks to firms that I have done business with for at least ten years. All three were denied by telecheck, even though they weren't denied the last time I presented checks at these same firms. Although I was told that they had no negative information on me when I phoned them. I was told that it could be that it was because of the number of the check, (1849) The unusual amount of the check ($55.95)or I had no prior dealings with telecheck and would have to let time proove my check-writing habits.
First of all, the check number shows only that I have had this account for some time as the number is so high. Second, an amount of $55.95 is a very normal amount. Not a lot, and could be for gas, groceries, or any number of daily expenses. And third, My credit is not theirs to question as I am not asking for a a loan or anything else.
How is it possible that they can ruin a persons good name with their defaming reports? It doesn't take long for word to get round town that one was denied check writing priviledges. What if this were an emergency and I needed money for say--- medicine, out of town and had no cash, no credit cards and no-one to borrow from? What then. In this day and age of stolen identities, this could be a real problem and conceivably could land a person in jail because of their actions. Something needs to be done.
