Say what you mean, mean what you say also goes for writing! Thank You BofA !

You might want to read this first  CHECKS and BALANCES

So I get this little postcard in the mail, actually two, from Bank of America asking me to fill out a survey about an overdraft! Taking a better look, realized, this was serious! Instead of writing a check for 4,500 I had written one for 45,000. The numbers were correct the word was not..and guess what they(the bank) go by the written word. So if you mean a hundred, don't write a thousand. OOPS!! And the check was written to the IRS. Now how am I going to get it back?

Into my local BofA branch I go and  was greeted by Nancy Harter, a bank officer, with a delightful kind and understanding personality. I show her my cards and the copy of the OOPS check.

Say what you mean, mean what you say also goes for writing! Thank You BofA !
Within seconds, Nancy was in the bank's computer, I hear a sigh of relief. "Oh thank goodness, we stopped payment on that check!" And then another sigh of relief..this time from me!

So what could have been a nightmare, trying to get the funds back from the government, is a simple reissue of a check for the correct written amount. I will also put a copy of the OOPS check in with an explantion.
