Let's get Back at Telecheek!
Hi, I just back from Sears. I'm a 30 year customer there and have spent over 100 grand. Well I bought $150. in tools but I had to write a check for a smelly $12 bucs. DENIED!!! by you know who.
My credit rating is 826, I have $10 grand in that *** checking account....that I rarely use....and now I cant use it at all because of Telecheck. since they dont give any interest anymore in savings I didn't bother with that.

I am going back to sears, lowes, and other stores that wont take my checks. I'm going to fill the cart with expensive merchandise and then just leave when they decline my check. I will show them that I have the cash on me but am just too pissed and insulted to do business now. OUR biggest problem is that we always just use another pay method so the business doesn't think the denials are hurting them. I'm sure if we just start walking out they just might consider what is happening. Now really, having a picture ID driver license, credit card ID, etc. should keep the stores from being cheated. And especially when the checks are so small. I've seen on this board, $10, $12, $22....How ***
