TeleCheck Debacle

Yesterday I was using my personal check for a $27 transaction at Sams Club from an account with thousands of dollars in it and TeleCheck denied the transaction. I called TeleCheck and had to speak to a Mubutu in India who could neither speak English well, no answer any questions, hung disconnected me once and then read verbatim nonsense from a screen which did not answer any questions. Under any other circumstances, this is would have been comical however, I had to leave my purchases which were very important items and go back home 120 miles without my goods. YES TeleCheck will receive the STRONG LETTER TO FOLLOW!

Telecheck is a scam

I bought a car on 3/27/12 for $16000.00 and Telecheck authorized the check. (Of course, it was good). On 4/1/12, I purchased a car cover from Amazon for the same car, total purchase, $43.00 and Telecheck refused to authorize this check. The number they give for Telecheck if you wish to discuss it is totally useless, you do not get a human. I found another # on a website that tells you good numbers for businesses. I have never seen company that goes more out of its way to not speak to their victims. I was told that the reason the check did not pass was because I did not use enough checks. I said that didn't seem to be a problem on 3/27 for a much larger amount. The woman said that was all she could say. A typical Texas scam company, I usually complain to the Florida Attorney General about companies like this, I have run into several Texas *** companies. I will not do busines with any company that uses Telecheck. I will immediately call Amazon and the car dealer and tell them that.

You have just taken the words out of my mouth. The lady told me that they \"reccomend\" to accept or decline on a check by check basis. I asked what happens when I go to check...

Telecheck in Anna, Ohio - Check declined

I went into an establishment and wrote a check it cleared telecheck the next day I went into another establishment and wrote a check and it was denied why you ask they say they didn't have enough information on the account and too much suspicious activity. Really? 2 checks in a 24 hr period is suspicious? I have had this account for 10 years and have written checks at both places for years and no problems never even a bounced check(knock on wood) and they said they can't do anything about it. I had a friend who wrote a check in a store 1 cleared and 5 min later realized she needed something else and the 2nd check was denied suspicious activity they need to get their act together cause I am a ticked off consumer and will not go back to the 2nd establishment until telecheck is gone.

@diane, you are incorrect. I have over 3500.00 in my bank account and tried to make a large purchase at Best Buy. I knew that my daily debit card limit is 1400.00 so I chose to write a check for my purchase. Telecheck denied my purchase because they "do not have any...

Telecheck in Cleveland, Ohio - Forged check on closed account

An Individual stole checks on a closed account and forged them. KMart took a check with no ID and telecheck is covering the check. I gave telecheck all of my info ss, drivers license, date of birth, address etc. Complete check info. Thief caught by police that night. I prosecuted him, he is serving 120 days for a probation violation. Plus he has pending charges. Gave telecheck all info including what jail he is in. Now they what an affidavit of fraud. This despite the fact that the check was on a closed account and no ID offered. Have talked to 6 individuals in there Philipenes operation to no avail. They tell me they don't have a phone number for legal department nor for corp. offices.
