Went to Lowes and bought a new lawn tractor for 2,600 dollars. Paid with personal check with my old address in NY.
No problem even though I now lived in KY. One week later went to Lowes and bought new sink and faucet for 600 dollars. Wrote a personal check from KY bank and it was denied. I called Certegy and the *** there said there probably was nothing wrong with the check but I fit a profile that made it likely that my check would bounce.
I am a 69 yr old man who has never bounced a check in my life. *** said he would make my account a VIP account and this should take care of the problem. Said to wait 15 mins and try again. Did so and check still was not accepted.
Have been a loyal customer of Lowes for over 25 yrs but will not shop there anymore. By the way, Home Depot and Best Buy as well as many other big corps are using these check verifying companies. Do our country a favor and buy your stuff at a small local business and stay away from these big corps.
They don't care about us so we should not care about them.
Reason of review: personal check denied.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
