A construction worker that had bought a home and had received a $9,000 check from the IRS directly to his Chase account, was given a Chase check, minus some bank expenses, but when he went to cash it at a Chase branch, he was arrested and put in jail over the weekend. While he was in jail for trying to cash his IRS check, his car was towed and then sold at auction. A year later, he's still waiting to talk to someone from Chase bank. http://www.king5.com/news/125105599.html The teller didn't recognize that a Chase check was real, so they had him arrested instead of allowing him to cash the check. So is it a crime trying to cash a bank check at a bank? Sounds like Chase needs checks that don't look so fake, or at least educate the tellers and management about customer service. So what recourse do your have if you bank puts you in jail instead of handling your banking needs? Is it okay to jail people by accident? Should Chase at least apologize for their actions?
