Check your checking accounts online

WARNING.....check your account online before doing anymore shopping especially if you bank at Woodforest national bank!!!

Hubby made a $800+ deposit Saturday, it was posted online as a pending transaction immediatly because I was online doing some shopping. I sent out bill payments and did my last min Christmas shopping yesterday. All pending transactions have gone through by the next business day so I thought I was fine....wrong!!! This morning I wake up to being negative $300+ and that pending transaction....was gone!! Extreme panic set in...I called them and she was seeing exactly what I was seeing which was no deposit...so she had to research it. Thankfully they have found it and are fixing everything but......what if I didnt have online banking and this would have went on for at least 2 weeks until I started getting notices. There is nothing worse than money doing a disappearing act......

I totally understand what you are saying...I check my BA every single day because they do make mistakes...I have had to deal with at least two this year...no fun.....

and if there is an error or something is not right, don't wait. report it right away by phone or in person.

Exactly...it was a scary morning...Im glad I reported it before they had sent all the checks back to the companies...it would have been a huge mess then. I told hubby I think we are going to use checking now only to cash our checks...that way we dont have to worry about this.
