    My name is Wanda Ruth Goree, I went to Walmart on Feb. 3, 2017 to cash my check, the clerk ran my check through the scanner twice, but it did not accept in order for it to be cashed. The clerk gave me a telephone number to call which was [protected] a Tampa, Florida number. Once I called it the person whom I called asked me for my full check number, and that was from my Social Security check. After I gave it to her she told me I could not cash it there, which I had never had any problems cashing it at any of the locations before. She told me I had to cash it at a check cashing place or at my bank. I no longer have a bank so I went to the check cashing place at the East Mont Mall location. It was cashed immediately by the clerk. My main interest is why did I have to give WalMart my check number it is just another form of identity theft. I will have to report this to the police. My check from the United States Treasury has Wanda R. Goree on it. I gather that is what they were after. It is a shame what measures people will go through to commit fraud and identity theft. God Bless them.
    Sincerely, Wanda Ruth Goree

    I'm sorry to hear of your problems with this "Certegy company." They claim that they are a credit reporting agency, but I believe that they are more like a rinky dink little 3rd party outfit posing as a legitimate company. Any place that tries to skirt around the law and force you to supply them with more information upon your legally granted request to be provided with the information which they are already supplying on/against you to anyone whom requests it, but will not provide it to you unless you give them your life story including bank accounts and routing and transit numbers, is not a legitimate company and should undoubtedly be investigated by the federal government. Furthermore, it would not surprise me if this p.o.s. hack of an outfit is scamming all of this info on people so they can sell it to Mexico on the side. believe me, it happens and these are just the kind of shady hacks that are usually responsible. They pose as legit, but they don't even exist except for some back hole office with an automated phone system and one employee for the rare occasion that they actually take a call in person.

    I tried cashing a payroll check today at Wal mart and got denied. I got reason #2 for my denial. This would be the first time i cashed my payroll check at Walmart. I will call tomorrow during business hours to find out why I got denied.

    I am experiencing the my same thing Safeway in my neighborhood cashed my checks for 2 years, they cashed my check two weeks ago and i went back and the #2 code came up? Then I tried QFC and the same thing came up the #2 code so I went to Albertsons they cashed my work check one week then the next week the code came up I don't understand, I get paid every week it is strange how they will tell you that you can go somewhere else but they all say the same thing. Someone need to give more answers when you call in????? This is getting weird I was thinking the company that I work for was at fault but they are not Certegy need to give people more answers they get paid to tell you the script when the answer the phone? I want to know are they hiring because I would love to have a job where you have one script to disappoint people and make them think that something is wrong with their check.
