I went to purchase groceries at a local supermarket. Get to the register to pay and my check is declined.
Embarrassing but I call to find out why. It is because I have no check writing history. I use debit for almost everything. I seldom write checks and honestly feel an invasion on my privacy, as I see it, it's none of their business why I do or do not write checks.
Absolutely ridiculous. I will not patronize merchants any longer who use telecheck. From a common sense standpoint I would think someone who does not write many checks would be much less likely to write a bad check in the first place. I have had my current bank account 10+ years and my check number was in the 5000 range.
Highly pissed that some *** in TX has control over my ability to spend my money. A very pissed off consumer.
