As inspired by Bear Up North. I will start with our most recent situation.
King B's ex.
Last weekend we go to Lowes and I write a $25.00 check but have not brought my Dr License. So we use King B's. They deny acceptance of our check...and give us a number to call.
I call the number but they won't talk to me and insist that they talk to King B. They tell him that he has at least 2 outstanding bad checks at of all places Wal Mart! One from back in 2002 and one that was recently, April 2005. Of course Wal Mart's office was closed on Sat afternoon. So Monday he makes a number of calls and finds out that it is not 2 checks but 4 and they total over $300.00.
They give him the bank number and the account number so we drive a 5 hour round trip to talk with the bank....
The bank says no his name is not on that account nor signature card or anything. They write him a letter stating that he is not responsible for activity on that account.
So then he calls the fraud hotline number that Walmart gave him. They insist that if he is to get out of this that he fax a copy of his divorce decree to them.... Plus a letter from the bank and they will get around to taking his name off the list in a couple of weeks. But the whole time they are treating him like he is in the wrong...
So we still don't know who put his information with hers, whether she did it for what reason we have no idea.
The other question is how many other places has she written checks to and given his info...So we don't know what will continue to spring up.
Give me your best stories!
