Today, I got a birthday card in the mail from my aunt. I got all excited when I saw a cheque inside, but the cheque was addressed to the wrong name. Not only did my own aunt forget my name, I couldn't even bank the $60. FML
For some people, $60 can mean the difference between having groceries to eat and gas in the car for a week versus not. As a struggling student in my early 20's so broke I was wearing shoes with holes in the sole and eating Ramen every night, receiving $60 for my birthday would have been a huge blessing. I understand the OP's dismay at not being able to cash the check.
I have a long name & family even misspell it, so I go by a nickname.
I've had family write checks out to my real name & misspell it.
I've had family write checks out to my nickname.
You have to endorse the check first with the name they wrote.
-THEN- below it you have to endorse it again with your actual name.
This lets the bank know that there was a mistake, but puts your real name on it too.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
