Target Complaint - Target doesn't need your money
WEST JORDAN, UTAH -- Has this happened to anyone else? I shopped at Target for the first time last month, since it is a bit out of my way. After seeing the merchandise they carry, I returned to spend around $300. At least, I tried to spend that much - my check was refused by Target authorization. When I asked the cashier the reason why, she just shrugged it off and said she had no idea but I could call the number printed on the back of the check. I was frustrated, confused and angry since I had spent around three hours shopping, which were now a total waste. Then suddenly the thought occurred to me that somehow someone had gotten into my account, and I rushed home in a panic. When I was reassured that all was well with my bank account I called Target authorization to find out why my check was refused. I was told I did not have enough history with Target and what they would like to see is several purchases of around $50 over six months. I was stunned, and still confused. Aren't those little black electric boxes there for the purpose of determining whether a check is good or not? If not, what are they for?
Apparently Target is doing great in this poor economy and doesn't want new customers. That is, unless they are willing to follow specific rules. Perhaps those rules should be posted at the entrance of the store so potential new customers don't waste their time.
