Anonymous By writing a check, YOU give the authority to Telecheck, like it or not. Telecheck does not care.

Tried to purchase dog food at tractor supply and my check was denied because I had no history with this account number. I am 72 yrs old and have never written a hot check. My account was hacked and someone tried to withdraw money out of my account so I closed the account and opened a new account and moved money to new account.Telecheck refused my check from the new account because it was the first check I had written from the new account. I...

Last week I went into a jewelry story to purchase a necklace that was under $500 and my check was declined by Telecheck. I had more than enough money in my account to cover the check. Once the salesperson provided me the phone number to call Telecheck and I was connected to a representative who provided me with a bogus reason that I had never written a check for that amount in that particular store for that amount of money before. I explained to...

Four years ago TeleCheck wrote me that a check I had written at K-Mart had been returned and I owed K-Mart (it was less than 40 dollars) and I needed to pay TeleCheck $75. I took the letter to my bank, was told they had had other complaints about TeleCheck. I sent a copy of my bank statement, showing the check that supposedly had been returned had been cashed by K-Mart. This week a check I wrote to Sam's Club for $45. was declined, although I...

This company has no clue on how to coduct business. When an individuals check is declined simply because they dont have enough information on that individuals habits on writting checks. That is ***!!! In this day and age individuals use plastic instead of checks. However there are times when someone may have no option other than use a check, but its declined because they dont write checks. How are they supposed to get info on their habits if...

Anonymous Pay cash or use credit card. Safer for you and for the merchant.

They declined my check at a store I always shop at but usually use a debit card. When my debit card was stolen I had to use checks. Telecheck approved a check for $40 but the next week declined one for $60. Their reason was that I didn't have enough history on the account. They told me I could try again and that even the declined checks would build my history. I finally figured out if I kept the check amount to $39 or less it would be approved....

rollo2016 Complain to the store. They are the ones relying on Telecheck and need to be aware of how it really operates.

Went to Sears to make purchase, check declined from advice of Telecheck. ALL BECAUSE OF TELECHECK. Went online and purchased by PayPal. No problem. Telecheck needs to be out of my business and everyone else's looks like to me. My bank has not been able to help either as there are no LIVE PERSON to talk to. Automated response from Telecheck to my bank was that they did not tell SEARS to not accept my check, they just don't have any activity on...
