I bought a money order at my bank around June 15. The money was supposed to be taken out of my checking account but never was. How long do they have to take the money out? I don't want to get hit with overdraft charges.

I would call the bank and make them aware of this.

You're probably right. Think I'll just leave the money in the account for now though. Its their mistake, why should I go to a lot of trouble to correct their mistake?

It's been 6 weeks. There will be a complaint filed with the federal reserve.

Would that be like writing a check and the money not being taken out of the account until the check is cashed?

Yeah, but why would they wait 2 or 3 months to take the money out. Should have been done the same day. I think they are possibly comitting fraud by trying to set me up for fifty dollars in overdraft charges

Its different than a check. I walked in the bank and bought the MO from them. The money should have been taken out of my account then

Correct. It must be paid for up front.
