in the past, when this has happened before, the teller accidentally returned the check money to the source account, instead of the destination account. they have made good on any bounces in the past, so i hope they will do the same this time, if that is what the problem is. they open at 09:00EST, so i will either call, or stop in at that point and see what happened.
exactly what i suspected happened. it is fixed now, though it won't clear until Monday. oh well, i guess. at least they fixed it.~Travis
Just to add, a courthouse near me (city, pop about 10,000) will not take credit or debit card. All payment for tickets have to be in cash or check. And they will not take any coins over $5.00 I guess because they had too many irate people who tried to pay for parking tickets in nothing but pennies.
7th time they have done this!
Ouch. I have free online banking so I can check anytime and if there's negative balance, I usually have until the close of business day to change that to avoid overdraft fee.Paid overdraft only once in all the time I've had this bank, a very small chain with 3 branches and 2 villages.
