Walmart check cashing services are not what they advertise them to be.
Walmart uses Certegy Check Services to verify that checks are valid and boy is that company a joke. They declined a payroll check for me today from a well known national company. When I called to find out why I was declined with reason # 2, I was told it just happens sometimes that the company checks get flagged because similar checks were no good and they would not approve them because then they would have to guarantee payment to Walmart if the check you presented was not good. I researched their website also, wow, you can get a gold certification just by downloading an application and giving them all kinds of personal information on yourself and maybe (just maybe) you won't be declined as much. Yeah right, like I am going to give them all my information, take a look at the form if you want a good laugh. I have never had a bad check in my 60 years and I certainly hope now that I was declined a payroll check cashing that my personal checks do not start being declined, I write so few of them anymore, but I would sure be livid if it starting happening. A class action lawsuit is what is needed against this company.
