Did you know wal-mart does not control the checks they take? Tele check tells them who can write one there and the manager Janet can do nothing about it. It ashamed the big company take your money and sends to to Arkansas bleeding your community of it resources and working the locals at minimum wage with few benefits.
If you need things try other stores first before you send your money out of the community
Be careful of your checks when you use them anywhere, there are those who raid bank accounts and sell information they get from the trash and different sources around stores and in them, I heard once that a local business lost over 50 thousand dollars because some got their information from an employee of a business and sold it or gave it to someone else. They caught the person but Florida would not bring them back and the merchant would do nothing about it either. No name mentioned but you can guess if you wish.

Telecheck does that to help prevent fraud. The system may not cash your check one day, but will a week later. Personally I think they aren't strict enough when it comes to checks. I worked there for a few years and while I was at work someone had taken 4 of my personal checks and used them for purchases in the store, WHILE I was working and NOBODY thought to actuly look at the names on the check, or check ID. Walmart needs to change its check cashing/ check writing policy alot.

When someone writes a bad check or hasnt cleared up a bad check situation, telecheck won't allow anymore checks to be written on that acct. Once you have cleared up the problem your acct will clear and you can once again write a check. Family Dollar used to use that also among others. It helps to keep bad checks from being written.
Actually now, from what I see, your check will automatically gets rejected if you don't have enough funds just like your debit card does. But that is a different situation.
