A recent trip to Wal Mart for an oil change led to a complete nightmare thanks to Telecheck! I had lost my.wallet but was fortunate to find my checkbook to pay for services rendered.
Wrong! Even though u had money in my checking account, Telecheck had no history on my account so they denied my check. Fine if it had been just groceries, but it was automotive services. The irony is, they had just accepted a check for a larger amount mere minutes before the denial.
To top it off, I had two very hungry and loud toddlers to add to the mix. Associates at the store were whispering and calling others about it while I waited for a family member to drive 45 minutes to come pay for the services u could have easily handled. And what response do I get when I call their customer service. " I n sorry for the inconvenience this might have caused you" in very poor English and then an immediate hang up.
Way more than an inconvenience in my mind. I am now boycotting any retailer using Telecheck as I know their services will not support me in an emergency no matter how much money I have available.
