I wrote a check at Target for 101.33. The check was denied.
I knew that there was approx. 5K in my account so I was really appalled. There were 6 people in line behind me so you can imagine how embarassed I was. I then drove directly to my credit union, which was directly across the street.
They checked my balance on my account. It was 5,500.23. So I went home and called CENTERGY only to get a meesage saying that they would not accept my check. I then called the local Target and spoke to the manager.
She gave me a consumer satisfaction number to call. I called only to get a person that had such a heavy accent that I could not understand her. I asked to speak to someone else and she transferred my call and was promptly hung up on. At this point I was so frustrated I called back and spoke to a person that recorded my complaint and said he would pass it along.
Target does not a have a sign to my knowledge stating that they don't accept checks. If I was another race and had the time I would so take Target to court because surely this is discrimination. I have done business with Target since they opened the doors in this town. I wish I had a dollar amount to give you an idea how much money I have spent in Target over the years.
You would probably be amazed. I was buying items for my son to take to college. He is leaving tomorrow so I don't have the time to spend dealing with *** like this.
Target you really dropped the ball. I just got back from Wal-Mart...no issues there.
