Heres a good one:**Best Buy (and hundreds of businesses) contract w* "Telecheck" to determine whether a customer's check should be accepted or declined.**Telecheck policy is to decline everyone's first check. In other words, if I open an account w* Wells Fargo then Best Buy will decline at least my first check because Telecheck requires that their database show an established history of writing reliable checks, among other factors, before they'll approve a check. So if I write a check to Best Buy (or any store using telecheck) from an account that has never gone through Telecheck's system, then Telecheck will decline the check bc its system doesnt have a history of that account.**So you need a sufficient history of writing checks in order to write a check, but you cannot write even the first check because you won't yet have sufficient history.***My solution: Down with Telecheck! However much $ companies think they're saving by hiring telecheck to help avoid bad checks, is heavily outweighed by the lost purchases of normal*reasonable people who wont put up with their checks being declined so baselessly. Personally I had over $*k on the counter, and could've just paid from a different account, but instead my family walked out in disgust. Just FYI
