So this is back in July this is happening. Somehow the check got rejected and they mailed me back. Postmark on the envelope is July 31st 2002, but I just got the letter yesterday. I called the Post Office and they said that it's quite possible that the letter just got lost. So I call the bank to figure out what's going on. They can't check back farther than three months. Well that doesn't help me because I just got the letter! The Internet will only go back three months also. They were more than happy to order me back copies of my statements for a fee. Wrong! Not my mess up!
Basically she told me that if I have the check in my hand (which I do) then the money never got deposited in my account. So apparently I've been out for $768 for 5 months and I never new it. I sorta doubt that because I would have known if I was out $768! Ben would have noticed too, "Hmmmm I have an extra $700 this month time to call 1-800-cheap-date." Somehow I don't think I'm really out $768, but I'm hoping I am. Assuming the bank was correct in that statement then I have $768 coming to me that I wasn't counting on!
So both Ben and I ordered past bank statements to compare. We'll see what happens in a week when they get here.
