Post dated checks
Asked Mar 11, 2008, 09:46 AM
I recently wrote a post dated check to my propane provider. I asked them if they could hold the check for one (1) day and they agreed. I dated the check for the following day. The next morning I checked my bank statement online and found that they had deposited the check the previous day and it caused 4 electronic POS charges to fail to clear costing me $100.00 in bank charges. Is the propane company responsible to reimburse me for those bank charges? I ask because this happened one time before where a company accepted a post dated check and cashed it early. They could not apologize enough for their mistake and covered ALL bank charges.
