I’m wondering whether anyone else has run into this problem with their bank.
I went to deposit a check yesterday and was informed that from now on, the name on the check had to match the name on my account (I’ve banked there for 2 years and have a good record). I’ve got an unusual first name and go by a nickname 99.99% of the time, so the check had my nickname on it. The nickname is clearly based on my official name—it’s not as though I was born Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and go by Gertrude.
Additionally, the check was an official one, not personal (it was a reimbursement check from work).
Wonder if they would’ve done the same thing to someone named Jennifer who had a check made out to Jenny. Any feedback/ideas?
