I'm going to have a tough time explaining to the person I bounced the check to what happened.
That person is...me.
I sold off some investments to pay off some debts, and the way I was told the transfer would work was that they would put the money into a checking account attached to my investment account, and I would then write a check to myself off that to move the money into my personal checking account, which I could then use to pay my bills. So I ordered the sale, and wrote the check. I deposited it. Now the money from the sale has turned up in my personal checking account in ADDITION to the check I wrote myself. So that check is going to bounce.
To say I'm annoyed would be a bit of an understatement. I am going to bounce a check between two citibank accounts because the money was put into the wrong account...an account that they TOLD ME they couldn't put the money into directly. That's the whole reason for having the second checking account.
Shouldn't we be doing all of this through smartchips embedded in our wrists by now?
