they credited my checking with two extra dollars.i couldn''t figure out where the $2 came from.
this really bothers me,cuz my balance always match the bank''s to the last cent. i only write 2 to 3 checks per month.

btw; do you still write checks ?

Is it interest?

I don''t even know where my checkbook is but I do have an EXCEL spreadsheet with all of my spending.

That''s what happens on a very slow Friday afternoon in an office. You plan your life through EXCEL.

yes I write checks... but your spose to keep track of how much money is in there??
I just track checks with duplicates and if I need spending money go online to check my balance first.
I never remember to fill out the register.

I heart my bank! They give .10 every time I or DH swipes our debit/credit card. Then they send a check at the end of the year. It really does add up.

I only write checks in church.

This happened to me once, except it was more around $60. I rechecked my figures numerous times and even called the bank and could never figure out where the extra money came from. I''m pretty sure, I messed up somewhere. . .banks do not give out free money!

Oh and I do still write checks. The only direct w/d we have is for life insurance. All my other bills are paid by check. I''m uncomfortable giving companies the power to withdraw money from my accounts!
For groceries, gas, etc., I use debit.

Hmm, that''s never happened to me before. I can''t think of a good reason why you would suddenly have an overage of an even $2 in your account, strange.

I still write checks but very occasionally for bill payments that I don''t want automatically withdrawn from my account.

I still write 3 checks a month....

Once, I wrote a check for $137.10
The bank put it in as $131.70... I guess neither party ever noticed. I got 6.60 for no reason. I left it be, and figured if the bank ever realized their mistake, they could just deduct the 6.60 from my account. They never did. Maybe something like that happened? Do all your checks match up?

OK something is niggling in the back of my mind, it has to do with this...jeez...let me think, I remember reading something either on line on in the paper that is you suddenly come up with extra small amounts of money that it could be some form of possible identify theft or something like that, I do remember it was something that wasnt good, but I cant remember, but you all should double check with your banks just in case. And to answer you question yes, I still write checks

Nope, never happened to me. Mine is usually the other way because my DH forgets to tell me when he uses his debit card at times, so I always check online.

And yes, I still write checks.

yes it seemed like it was something like that i cant remember the specifics but i do remember if i suddenly come up with a small amounts of money in account that i didnt put in there that i need to call the bank, sorry it has been many months ago that i read this, i was thinking i seen it the news on my yahoo homepage, now whether its is all true or not i dont really know, but it would still make sense to double check with the bank
