Telecheck is a check guarantee service that many businesses use these days. Too many bad checks over the years has warranted it. If your check is bad, Telecheck has to eat it ...

Telecheck in Wichita Falls, Texas - Denied check reason code 3

My debit card is being replaced and I am not able to use it so I wrote a check at Walmart for groceries and telecheck denied my check because I never wrote checks and they do not have any information on my account. I have plenty of money in my checking account and I should be able to write a check of any amount at any place I choose. I do not agree with this policy, it is ridiculous. I am a good citizen and have never had return checks or overdrafts on my checking account. Who are they to decide what money I can spend where just because I am writing a check.

Telecheck - Incorrect DL No. and will not correct

I was paying my cell phone bill as I have for a few years by using the telephone payment system. Cellular One automated message informs me that my transaction is denied by my bank. I try two more times, thinking this is a computer issue. I call my bank to check. There is nothing wrong with my account. I try again a few days later, again thinking the problem would be fixed by now. I get the same message. I call Cellular One and speak to a human. He informs me that he cannot accept my payment because Telecheck says I have an outstanding check that was not honored. He gives me a number to Telecheck. After several tries, and a few different phone numbers later, I finally get a human. She tells me that my husband's driver's license number is flagged because of a check written in February. I ask her the check number, routing number, account number, etc. This check is not even on the same bank as the checking account we use. I ask her can't she realize that the checking account I have is not even the same bank. She was not helpful. She said I would have to file a forgery report and go to the police and get a police report as well. I asked her what do I tell the police. I have no proof a forgery occurred. I don't even know what jurisdiction I would have to file a report. I spoke to her supervisor (supposedly). I still got no results. The supervisor said my bank could not help me, that I would have to do what Telecheck said if I want to be able to write checks to any place that uses Telecheck. I am unable to pay my cell phone bill. My bank is working on the problem, but I was told it will take 7 to 10 business days to see if Telecheck will make this correction for a wrong Driver's License number associated with my checking account.

Telecheck in Newport News, Virginia - Telcheck denied electronic payment

1+ year ago, I was a victim of check fraud after checks were stolen. Suntrust Bank helped me resolve the issue. Telcheck made me a second victim. Now, after all this time Telcheck denied a direct withdrawal from my checking account which has a balance of $8,000 for purchase of book from Amazon? The amount of the book is $17.96. Doesn't $8000 cover this measly amount. I ask you, WHY??????? I could not resolve it via a call to Telcheck. Who audits these people? apparently NOONE. This company of crooks needs to be dissolved. Another headache to deal with.

Telecheck in San Antonio, Texas - Tele Check has the most ridiculous policies!!

I recently went to Wal-Mart to purchase groceries and my check was denied 2 to Tele Check not having any record of me using their system and "fraudulent" activity on my account.If there is no record of me how is my account "fraudulent". When I called their customer service (1st time) they were rude and couldn't give me a definitive answer to as why my account was fraudulent, however, the lady said she updated my account and I would be able to process another check. I asked her if I needed to keep her on the phone, she said no. When I ran another check it too was denied. The store manager wasn't very helpful and was rude as well. I called again to telecheck and again they were rude, but did apologize for the inconvenience. Asked if I listened to the automated system and when I said yes he said "well there you go". I informed him that I didn't understand exactly what it meant and he repeated what I said in a condescending manner and informed me that they wouldn't be able to process the check because I have never used a check with their company and it was high risk. This is their policy. HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO BE ABLE TO USE A CHECK WITH THEIR COMPANY IF THEY WON'T EVEN PROCESS ONE! I didn't have the money to pay for my groceries and had to put everything back. Since I use recyclable bags I had to unload everything! It was very frustrating and quite embarrassing, because I had my son with me and was wondering what was going on. I will NEVER AGAIN SHOP AT WAL-MART OR USE A COMPANY THAT USES TELE CHECK.

Telecheck in Mathews, Virginia - Check Declind

My check was denied for the amount of $60 because TeleCheck told me "I had fraudulent activity" it turned out to be I had written a check somewhere that was not TeleCheck and they had a check number out of order. The reason also was given because I had written a check to Walmart for $700. that was out of my normal, it was approve. They advise me I could not write a check anywhere that used TeleCheck for 7 days. I feel that there needs to be some regulation for them to fall under. I complained to the owner where my check was denied and will avoid any merchant that uses TeleCheck that I can.

I do not have credit cards. If Amazon and Telecheck cannot accept my previous method of accepting.money from my checking account, they do not need my business.
