wrote a check in the amount of $ 55.26 at Sally's Beauty Supply in Edmond, OK and check was denied! The whole thing made no sense since they only used my drivers license as verification.
They never entered my checking account number so there is no way it would know if I had money in the bank or not. The girl at Sally's could not offer me an explanation when I told her that I had several thousand dollars in my checking account and this was ridiculous. She also gave me a small Certegy card that has their "Dear Customer - we are sorry that your check could not be authorized" explaining that Certergy did not have sufficient informaton available to approve the transaction, or this transaction exceeded a pre-established limit. Also advising me that I can call them toll free.
It also says if I contact them - I have to give them my full name & address, drivers license, telephone number, check number, check amount, checking account number, financial institution, date of declined check and business where check was declined! WHAT A JOKE! They declined me by only using my drivers license as reference..........and then later want all pertinent information after-the-fact. Wonder what these businesses are paying for this ridiculous service?
They are losing business by using Certegy!
I luckily had a credit card available and was able to pay for what I purchased - which in turn, did cost Sally's an additional fee to the credit company. CERTEGY IS A RIP-OFF.........
