This year I have had more problems with my clients checks than before. Frankly, I seldom write checks. I do the payroll via check and I have about only 2 vendors whom I write checks to, other than that I pay everything with debit or online. I'm finding this to be the same case for my customers. I'm finding that people are making mistakes with writing checks to us, as they're not used to writing checks anymore. People are not filling out the dollar amounts correctly, I'm not catching it, and the banks are not honoring the amounts as they should be. I believe this year I have had 3 people give me checks not properly written out. And last week I had a client write me 2 checks totaling over $8k. They were returned. NSF. This customer, the man is a high profile DC attorney, very nice man, very down to earth, and friends with other high profile names that we hear in the national news. The wife is very nice, personable, and down to earth. I got notice from my bank that the checks were not honored. I was furious, but I also had a strong hunch that they made an honest mistake. They were both way to nice to me and went out of their way to chat with me when we were working there. Had they been up to no good - they would have avoided me. Sure enough, she said "oh my god I am so sorry and embarrassed, we do everything automatically electronically, I grabbed the wrong check books, we never write checks anymore". I'd guess that about 40-45% of our clients paid via credit / debit card this year. Higher number than ever before. It's seeming like accepting checks is becoming more and more of a pain in the arse. Anyone else experiencing problems with customers checks as a result from today's times?
