I got a call from my temple Thursday telling me my check was declined. I called the bank to find out what the problem was. They told me the account was fine. I then noticed another check I had written to pay for his perpetual care was also returned. Still, I checked online and saw the balance is fine and there is no indication that there is a problem.
The officer in my bank told us the bank probably froze the account until his last social security and pension check is retrieved. I understand they have the right to collect that money, but not to hold all of it. What I really don't understand is why Apple Bank couldn't notify me about this.
My dad never wrote a bad check in his life. He shouldn't be writing them in his death either. No one is available in Apple until Monday, but they better have a good excuse and they better make good on all those checks.
