I recently wrote a check for $1000 to pay 2 mortgages. The teller ran one mortgage only and withdrew $461.16, leaving the other mortgage unpaid. The tellers just key your R & Acct # and then key your payment (and don't bother to bal to your check!). Horrible accounting practice. An extra 0 or misplaced decimal could drain your bank acct because the amount you write on the check doesn't matter (IT SHOULD), just the amount the teller keys (RIGHT OR WRONG)!!!
