Find an old ETV check crumpled up in the bottom of your backpack and you can’t remember if you deposited the check?
Here’s what you should do:
1. Check you online banking account to see if you deposited the check. You can also go into your bank and ask the bank teller to help you.
2. Call you ETV coordinator. We can find out if the check has been deposited or cancelled. If someone waits too long to deposit a check, we usually cancel the check. This means that the check isn’t good to deposit anymore. It can take a couple of days for us to look into it, so be patient.
Please do not try to cash or deposit the check. If you try to cash or deposit a cancelled check, your bank might give you some money in the short term. But as soon as your bank figures out that the check isn’t good, your bank will take that money back. If you don’t have that amount in your account, your bank will charge you overdraft fees. If your bank thinks you double deposited a check on purpose, they will close your account.
Finally, please do not take a found check to a check cashing store. If the check is not good, and they give you money, they will take legal action against you.
