I shop at neighborhood Walgreen's Drugs weekly. I wrote a check for $77.92 for merchandise on June 11, and the check was DENIED.
I put the amount on one of my credit cards (which, by the way) are always paid off at end of month)! I write a check almost WEEKLY at this drugstore!!! I drove a few hundred yards to my bank (in same shopping center); my bank balance was over $6,600.00. I took it back to Walgreen's, and showed the Manager.
He wanted me to go to my car, retrieve the 4 or 5 bags, bring them back to him, and he would 're-scan' them, and see why my check was denied (by Tele-check! I was HOT; I was TIRED; I was ANGRY... I will not try writing checks to Walgreen's any longer; will always put on my credit card, or use CASH! I called Tele-Check and all they could tell me was that I had written an UNUSUAL NUMBER of checks recently.
I have only written my USUAL checks to pay my bills! This company is WHACKO!!!
