They declined my check at a store I always shop at but usually use a debit card. When my debit card was stolen I had to use checks. Telecheck approved a check for $40 but the next week declined one for $60. Their reason was that I didn't have enough history on the account. They told me I could try again and that even the declined checks would build my history. I finally figured out if I kept the check amount to $39 or less it would be approved. Try explaining to the cashier why my order had to be rung up in $39 intervals. What a pain! These... Read more

At Walmart every time I try to cash a check that I've received from a business the check is declined. The clerk at Walmart always asks me for MY social security number. Why? When I didn't write the check? This is embarrassing and has caused me extreme stress! I'm disabled and have gone to Walmart via taxi cab to shop. Thinking well I'll cash this check, shop and then I'll have money to get a cab home. Nope. Doesn't work out that way. At one point I had to call the police to get a ride! I look forward to getting an answer. It's... Read more

Long story short, two checks were written on our account by someone not on our account. That account was close to zero balance. We had to pay the NSF fees, then a weeks later Telecheck decides to charge us 25.00 per check (Wal Mart check fee). That account did not have enough in it, and our bank sent them back, charging us 29.00 EACH for NSF. I called Telecheck, jumped through all the hoops, finally got to speak to a person with a very hard to understand accent. (India???) I told her the fees were being returned and asked if I could pay them,... Read more

We are invalids. Use Amazon for everything and have for a few years. You are now declining my purchases. I have more money in my bank than I will spend in a lifetime and I don't understand why you are controlling how I spend my money. When I phoned in, I was hooked up with someone whose English I could not understand. Apparently because I paid a $5,000 credit card off that day, it was decided I had spent too much of MY money. That was 3 days ago. Why are my charges still being declined? When are you going to straighten this issue out? ... Read more

Several orders on Amazon were cancelled. Was told my bank declined, I went to bank and they said they didn't. Went to Sears to make purchase, check declined from advice of Telecheck. ALL BECAUSE OF TELECHECK. Went online and purchased by PayPal. No problem. Telecheck needs to be out of my business and everyone else's looks like to me. My bank has not been able to help either as there are no LIVE PERSON to talk to. Automated response from Telecheck to my bank was that they did not tell SEARS to not accept my check, they just don't have any... Read more

They provide no definitive answer for declining a check approval or how they establish a rating for your file. I requested a file report from them and all they did was regergetate the transaction for the day of the event. At the time of purchase, everything they asked for was given. Even a call to my bank institution who clearly stated funds were available to cover my $2000 purchase. The also stated, "my file reflects a positive status and contains no derogatory information. When I spoke with the supervisor for the restitution section, he had... Read more

We are back on their blacklist and can't write checks for at least the next seven days because my wife tried today to do her monthly shopping in two different communities. That, apparently, triggered as "suspicious activity" in the mind of the TeleCheck Big Brother Computer. She wrote three checks for various grocery items in our hometown and then went about 35 miles away to buy a month's supply of meat items at as meat market we like. She does this same pattern every month! Today the meat market refused her check so she had to use a credit... Read more

Absolutely ridiculous! Declined my check twice due to not having a "good enough" check writing history with them. How can you have a history with them if they keep declining you!?!? Have more than enough to cover the checks...Then they say wait 7 days then you can write another check and hopefully won't be declined again if so, call back. ***!!! Add comment

January 22, 2016 Telecheck refused to honor my check to Stop & Shop. Called customer service which provided incorrect reasons: Account closed and Insufficient funds. I filed a dispute claim and included a bank statement copy of my 35+year account for the period the check was refused as proof that the account has never been closed as well the availability of funds, and also a replacement check. I am afraid this may damage my credit. Any ideas to solve this unpleasant situation? Read more

Don't complain to Telecheck. Complain to the customer service at the businesses that use them. I had a check rejected at Best Buy even though there were sufficient funds. Telecheck said I did not use the account enough. I wrote Best Buy, and they were very courteous about it. I urged them to quit using this service, as it alienated their customers. By going directly to the firms that use Telecheck, you can help put these people out of business. Read more
