TeleCheck ***

Four days ago I wrote a $429 check to pay for a new laptop. TeleCheck approved the transaction, and the check cleared via EFT. Today, at the same merchant, Telecheck declined a $99 check to pay for some additional services. I called them from the store. Their explanation: "Lack of hsitory." When I pointed out the they now have more history on me than they did four days ago when they approved $429, they replied, "Well, we use a variety of guidelines, and each transacton is evaluated individually." When pushed for specifics, they simply repeated the same corporate mantra. ***

I have been unable to write a check for a long time. Recently, I called and finally got the *** people on the phone. They have my driver's license number in the system from True Credit for 14.95 since 2009. What the ***? True credit is online, I couldn't have written...

Telecheck you are getting ready for a lot of class action suits against you. This is crazy when you have the money in your bank and you decline a check this is WRONG!!!!!

Telecheck

I used a savings account to pay a cell phone bill. Telecheck stopped the payment because I didn't have a "check writing profile" for that account. Doesn't matter that the money was there. Doesn't matter that I was charged a penalty because the payment was denied. They say it was for my protection and they've updated my profile, but they can't approve the transaction...and they can't "update my profile" before seven days. So tough sh_t. Well, bend over Telecheck! You've denied me access to my funds for a perfectly legitimate use and cost me more money.

I have been shopping at the Stop in Shop in Milford CT for years. My checking account was recently changed from New Alliance Bank to First Niagara as the result of a bank merger. When I first wrote a check from the First Niagara account, even though my account number...

There is a consumer class action against Telecheck in Tennessee for reasons similar to the one you mentioned. Hope someone helps you to resolve this issue once and for all. ...

Telecheck in Antioch, California - Denied payment with no explanation???

Went to purchase pre-ordered supplies with a trust check and was denied. (Should mention that previous purchases had been successful so this was a total surprise) I was given a number to call where they requested to talk to an authorized signer on the account. Jumped through that hoop, and the VP of Finance calls, only to be told they had to talk to the President??? REALLY!!!! No explanation yet, nothing the consumer can do to get the payment approved and they expect the President to call them about a $900 purchase....humm, gotta wonder what type of risk the vendor is truly saving themselves from. My $900 is going to purchase from someone that will take my check....guess the vendor thinks the risk of losing customers is an ok one. Good bye Home Depot and Telecheck!!!

Telecheck in Glendale, Arizona - Denied my mother's check that I have POA over.

I have the Power of Attorney over my mom's checking account because she had a stroke. I purchase her medication and all of her incontinent supplies at my local Walmart. Telecheck submitted a check to my bank twice and my bank paid it. When I got it straightened out with my bank, Telecheck is now denying my mother's checks. When I call I get told that the "pattern of spending is different" so they are denying my mother's check. My pattern of spending is the same. Who the heck does Telecheck think they are? Who gave them the "power" to decide what I can spend and on what?

There should be a law against Telecheck being allowed to deny checks without a means of telling the consumer why their check was denied. I just left Walmart in Fort Oglethorpe, where my check was denied with a code 4. All the cashier could say, it is probably an...
