Fraudulent check

I received a call from you last Thursday regarding a fraudulent check a lady was trying to cash. Apparently my checks were stolen out of my mailbox. You indicated you were notifying the police and my bank needs further information (police report number). I have been trying to call you back, left messages, but have yet to hear back. Please contact me as soon as possible.

User's recommendation: No reply to my numerous calls and emails to A1 Check Cashing Service. One would think check cashing fraud would be a top priority for this type of business, but obviously not. Be ware!

They extorted money and information from me

TL;DR: Houston, TX - This place destroyed my stimulus check so that I could not bring it anywhere else. I had to "agree" to their huge fee and give them a bunch of information or throw away $1,200! I made the mistake of walking up to the window of A1 Check Cashing (the one on Telephone road inside the Swift gas station) and passing my $1,200 stimulus check under the bullet-proof glass. I asked the clerk what they charged, and she told me she refused to quote a price until I "created a profile", and signed the check(!). I asked for a ballpark estimate, and she said $100. I asked for my check back. She got on the phone with her boss, and refused to give my check back for three or four minutes (I got insistent). Then she wrote VOID on the face of the check before sliding it back! She said that was "policy" and I could still cash it anywhere else (no attempt to justify it beyond that). I even went to the place next door to check, and of course you can't cash a voided check. Now my choice was to "give" A1 my business or throw away $1,200. I had to give these scammers my social security number (the real one, I tried a fake one first), a fingerprint, a photo of my ID, and pay $100 for the privilege. It seems to me like they committed at least felony destruction of property in front of a bunch of cameras, and I'm guessing they expect to get away with this kind of thing. The places are parasitic at the best of times, but I didn't expect a business in my neighborhood would literally rob me.

User's recommendation: Go to HEB. Don't trust this company at all.

I'm guessing there's more to this than the complainer is letting on. However, this person doesn't have a case if they walked out of the store with the money. It will their word against the store who will show the transaction went down.


Sorry you got robbed by what you described sounds like the kind of people who belong in prison. It's like licking someone's ice cream cone and then handing it back to you !!!


If your story is 100% true, the defacement of your valid document by an unauthorized individual is indeed illegal. It will classify at minimum as forgery, destruction of private property (or government property until it is cashed properly) possibly up to larceny by adverse possession. You're only out $100 so it's strictly misdemeanor level stuff but I'd recommend that you establish a relationship with a real bank.
