    I can't even comment on this without getting banned. I hope it works out for him.

    all im going to say is this is gonna cost chase alot more than the amount of the check. I also hope the employee at the bank that caused the entire mess is fired immediately assuming they did not take a job elsewhere already to avoid getting canned.

    He also seems like the type of guy that would'nt sue even though he should.
    Bad things happening to good people again.

    His job should have been more understanding in some way.

    I have no words. That woman and the people in charge of the case on Chase's side should be thrown in jail. I'm all kinds of ticked off right now and I don't even know why... it didn't even happen to me! :mad

    I agree. Imagine being excited from a major milestone in your life and something like this happens. A year to respond is unacceptable. Now that he has a lawyer, he's going to get way more than any appeasement that Chase would offer.

    it's funny. some guy with no job can make $2000-$5000 deposits and it's no problem.
    man with a job, a house, a car and a check from the very bank he uses gets hounded.

    we know where Chase's priorities are. Drug Dealers keep the cash flowing, working stiffs are too shifty to trust.

    Messed up.

    I work at a financial institution, and I can tell you 100% it should NEVER have gotten that far.

    This is how it would have gone in my bank (granted, I live in Canada, so I am not sure how a US bank would handle this, but this is how we would):

    - Everything up to him getting the cheque is correct procedure. If you are a member, and repeatedly bounce or overdraw your cheques, we will wait until you get a deposit and then close the account out and send you a cheque for the remainder, if there is any. You are responsible for your account being in good order, and if it is not, we have every right to close it down.

    - However, when he returned with the cheque intending to cash it, even if the staff member was suspicious, we have a note taking system where every major transaction or incident is recorded. Something like his account being closed out, and a cheque sent back to him for the remainder would have been noted on the account.

    - At that point, the staff member would check the amounts with the member's account, which would still be accessible to the staff member even when closed, and the notes, and finally, they can check the cheque number (in this case it would have been an office cheque or draft) and the system will tell you if it is legit. Even if there were no notes, and no way to access the member's account, the cheque number would be on a separate system where you can tell if it is legit and when it was drawn.

    - He would get his money.

    This is just beyond stupid that it got to that point. He should never have been arrested. That employee should be reprimanded in the very least.

    Huh. It does stir up a feeling of revenge in me imagining it.
