I finally got my first check from the EBook right? I am sharing part of it with Dorothy as she does part of the work.
Went to my bank yesterday to deposit it and my bank wouldn't let me deposit it!!! They thought it was a scam!!
The girl tried to call the company that issued and couldn't get an answer. So I asked if I went home and found a phone number and got ahold of someone there that could verify the check would that work. She said yes. So brought the check home with me( we are 20 min. from town) and I called and got a phone number from the head of the accounting dept. I called my bank and they wouldn't even call. They said they would hold the check for 20 days. I had already waited 2 weeks to get the check I dd not want to wait another 3 weeks!!!
So I thought I would try having my mom put it in her account. This was 3pm by this time. Well her bank closes their lobby at 4 pm. So we scurried around and got over there.
We went to put it in her account which they were willing to do!!! But the young lady suggested I could start my own account in the future! Which I did not think of because I already have an account at my bank!
So I had to open a new account in a differant bank just to be able to use my own money!!!! Thank goodness it worked out!!! Dorothy had already set up an appointment to get new tires on her car which she needs badly and if we had to wait another 20 days she would have been driving on extremely bad tires!!! Not to mention I needed to pay some bills!!
Thank the Lord it all worked out!!!! Whew!
The lady at mom's bank said she didn't understand why my bank wouldn't accept it because they had verification the account existed but because it was an out of state check and they saw an internet address at the top of the check they decided it was probably a scam! Which it is not! I talked to the accountant myself which I called by getting a telephone # thru the yellow pages. And the lady at Mom's bank said just verifying that the acount existed proved it wasn't a scam!
The lady at mom's bank just took my word for it she didn't try to verify anything! Why couldn't the bank we have banked at for years do the same thing???? Not happy with my bank right now!!! :evil:
Thankfully in the near future I will be allowed to direct deposit checks from them. Then this won't be an issue!
Very FRUSTRATING when you have money and you can't use it!!!
