I have written checks to Walmart for years. They have not bounced.
My bank is located INSIDE Walmart. I tried to write a check last night for groceries and dog food totalling $35. My check was declined.
Their check service said they could not give me a reason, it could have been that I was buying items that are frequently fraudulently purchased (lunch meat, bread, milk, vegetables, and dog food?) or that my account did not have sufficient history to warrant a purchase of that amount, even though I've had the account for over 5 years and write checks to cover my house note and car payment every month that are 10 to 20 times that amount which have never bounced? Walmart has lost my business forever.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
Monetary Loss: $35.
