WHen purchasing a refrigerator at Lowe's, my check was rejected. The reason given "Check being held". I was fortunate enough to have another means to get the refrigerator.
The following day, Monday, I called the number for Certegy Check Services (aka Certegy Check Services, Inc) and was told I had a bad check with K-Mart. Having not shopped in K-mart in at least 15 years, I was then told it was recent, and probably a cashier put MY driver's license number on someone else's check. That person obviously wrote a bad check, with my identity attached.
I was told I would have to wait 3-5 business days to write a check until they cleared up the error. I made no error, I had money to buy the refrigerator, and now due to some dim witted cashier, I cannot write a check for 5 business days? Where is the justice in that? I asked WHERE this K-mart is located and they wouldnt tell me. PRIVACY issues to protect the GUILTY!
I went to my bank - and my account is fine, never had a bad check, but the bank couldnt help, due to the fact its my driver's license number causing the issue. I am building a new house, and need to write several checks DAILY this week to finish up. Now I am on total hold, and furious! In America, dont we PROTECT the innocent, not PUNISH them?!?
