Target Complaint - Target cannot accept my check
GARDEN GROVE, CALIFORNIA -- When I got to the register at Target in Garden Grove, CA. I wrote a check for
my merchandise which was only $44.90
The girl at the register told me my check was declined. I told her there has to be a mistake I have more than enough money in my account to cover the check. She told me I'd have to pay by credit card which I don't like to use which interest rates as high as they are. She told me to call the number on the back of my check. It said We are sorry we cannot accept your chek . Our decision was based on information from Target auth. with an 800#. When I called was told that another account that was linked to my account was a problem I asked what that was and was given another 1800 mumber to call which I did. It was certigy and was told that other account (which I don't have) had 2 bad checks in northern californa I haven't been to northern Calfornia when asked what bank? He told me it was a credit Union I told him I don't have an account with a credit union. At this point I'm frantic thinking identity theft. He gave me another number to call at Safeway where he said had reported the 2 bad checks. I called the 800 number
he gave me. I called Safeway and the Lady took all my information and could not find any account linked to mine or any checks that were bad linked to my account. So what is with Certigy? (Not sure of the spelling) As for the embarrassment, and stress worring about identity theft. I will not be shopping at Target for the holidays and I will make everyone I know of my ordeal.
