File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission's Consumer Protection division. I just did and maybe if there are enough complaints filed, the FTC will see that there is a BIG problem with TeleCheck declining perfectly good checks by American consumers with NO...

Exact same thing happened to me at Best Buy. You can be sure I will use another store than take a risk of the embarassment. PS-I have never bounced a check in 25 years. :(

Recently I wrote a check at Save a Lot and it was approved. Telcheck said the account was closed and billed me for the groceries and a $30 fee. It took two weeks to resolve that situation. A few days later I was refused at Walmart and had to leave two carts of...

Actually, the only way to hurt Telecheck is to stop writing checks in public, a very risky thing to do, anyway. Remember, no one at your bank looks at your written checks. J...

I am another victim of Telecheck

I am a 66 year old military and business retiree. I have never bounced a check in my life, but Telecheck has declined 3 checks written here in Jacksonville Florida. Not only is this embarrassing, it is negatively impacting my constitutional right to live without undue harassment. If their conduct isn't illegal, it should be. The stores involved in this suggested I use a credit card; I wonder if there is collusion here. After calling 7 times to Telecheck to try to straighten this out; I have met with idiots who only know how to quote the party line, i.e. your denial is not based on incidents of insufficient funds or checking account balance. When this babble proved useless I asked how this situation could be fixed. What do you think the representative(s) said? Your denial is not based on incidents of insufficient funds or checking account balance the check(s) don't meet our criteria for approval. When I asked what to do I was told "you can try again in 2 or three weeks. As a result of this "unamerican" conduct I am going to pursue legal remedy, and everyone I know will know how telecheck and the stores that use this service should be boycotted.

Have never written a bad check In my 59 years of living. TeleCheck has decline 3 checks in the last 2 months without any good reason. Almost impossible to talk to anyone at TeleCheck. When you do you get a person from out of the US who give you no answers to any of...

Umm...maybe get with it. Just do it. Use cash. Use credit or debit card. Thus, NO checks. Therefore, no business to telecheck. No pissed off consumer. Everyone happy=...

I have been a loyal customer at the Valley Mart in Sweetwater, Tenn and have never had a declined check--nor have I ever had a returned check there or anywhere else. Recently, however, Telechek has declined my checks after getting gas. The first time it happened, the...

Within the past week, Telecheck denied accepting checks on my account at a Sams location and at a Wal-Mart. I have never had a bounced check in my life and am a retired law enforcement officer. I contacted the number provided and was told during the first call that...

Telecheck declined a check for $153.88 with a checking balance of over $13k!

Wrote a check to K-Mart for $153.88 on a local bank, high check number with valid address and ID and over $13,000 in the account and TeleCheck declined the check. Very humiliating to say the least. Called the number and was treated very rudely and given no reason except that it was declined because it was high risk. Also told it was their discretion and they owed me no explanation other than that. Asked to speak with a supervisor and was told same thing, then asked for manager and got hung up on. WTF? These folks need to get their act together and try a little customer service. I understand the problems with check fraud but what about that check was high risk? At least tell me so I can address whatever issue may exist that gives them cause for concern, if there is one. Extremely pissed!
