I tried to write a check at JCPenny for $16.74. It was refused.
I came home to call Telecheck to find out why. They informed me that on Oct. 25 and Oct. 27 I wrote a check at another store and the bank said it had insufficient funds.
I was like no way since my paycheck and my husbands pay check were both deposited on Oct. 24. The person said we tried to contact your bank tonight but they are not responding. I said of course not it is SATURDAY night.
She informed me not to write any more checks at business that use them until this is settled. So, Monday I am going to the bank to talk to them again. This is not the first or second or third time they have pulled stuff like this. They always say they are sorry but they are not since it keeps happening.
I emailed JCPenny that I will not be back as long as they use Telecheck. Now to find other business that we use to let them know we are no longer using them and why.
Monetary Loss: $17.
