I recently made a payment by check and then a couple of days later discovered that being a klutz at times, I had dated the check for October instead of August. A prefectly understandable mistake that could happen to anyone as I’m sure you will agree.
Anyway, I called the company and got a representative who checked with their Payment office who said it wouldn’t make a damned bit of difference. The magnetic numbers would be read, the amount posted to my account and the whole transaction from there on would take place by electronic fund transfer and no one would even look at the date.
I questioned the process but he insisted that I would have no problems. I still intend to check well in advance of the payment date and make sure it is credited and if not to pay by telephone fund transfer which I don’t like to do but will do if absolutely necessary.
If this keeps up all someone will have to do is wave their hand and money will be taken out of your account. It is getting way to easy to spend money.
