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.

May I suggest a Credit Union? There you would be one of the owners and would have a say in how it is operated.

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.

And I bet they call the cops if you tried to pay in $2 bills!

I hate the fact that if you do overdraft, there isn't any notice until you finally check your bank statement and see 5 overdraft fees totalling over 150 dollars for 27.36 worth of stuff.


That happened to me once, never again.

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.

Same here, the banks used to get criticised for adding and subtracting figures as they go, so if a payment went in 5minutes late and you went into negayive, they would fine you instantly, so you went further into debt.
Now they HAVE TO wait and do a tally at the end of the day.
Bpay and direct debit made them do it.

Hey, in the USA it's still possible to see old ladies writing checks at the supermarket/grocery checkout. Don't get in that lane if you're in a hurry.

The latest banking innovation is an app that lets you take a photo of a check and the money appears in your account.

Same-day transfers of funds between my account and my friend's account is unheard of, or at least, not without a $45 fee.
