I thought it would be usefull to some of us FWers to have a list of banks that do not use ChexSystems.

For those who do not know what ChexSytems is you can read about it HERE

I did a search and didn't find anything similar.
I put the list that I have found in the quick summary so that anybody can edit/add to it.

Hope this helps some of you!!!

nice list, though some of those banks/CUs use ANOTHER service , just not Chex.

More Chex info in this thread:

OP: GREEN FOR YOU! Nice list.

My $0.02

Tri Counties bank is based out of the city I live in and I banked with them. I went on vacation and over a check for under $10 that bounced they closed the account and reported me to chexsystems.

They are listed as not using chexsystems and this is incorrect.

Further more bank of america and US Bank if it has been 6 months or longer and you have proof you paid it will open an account for you.

For those of you looking for high yield savings - ING Direct doesn't use ChexSystems.

I was denied by Chase, Amboy, and HSBC all ove an account that was closed $20 negative (because of a disputed service charge) a few years ago. The funny thing is that I have a mortgage and credit card with chase - all opened while this mark was on chexsystems and I have a car loan and credit card with HSBC - also opened while this mark was on there.

I find that while the retail banks might use chexsystems to open a savings or checking account - they could care less when it comes to mortgages, car loans, and credit cards. It's pretty annoying being denied of a savings account for something so petty, but it's alright because I think it should be off in a year or so for me.

Green...Thanks for the list.

most credit check on top of checks. If you bounce checks, its likely they will either take two actions:
1. file at your county for misdermeanor or felony depository fraud
2. plaster your credit file with collections, sell the debt, continue to do so.

So the they check your credit and look for collections that appear to be of check nature.

it's quite easy to use the credit bureaus to find your bad check writing habits.

CERTEGY i think is experian is probably #1 these days. Didn't they buy out scan or chex systems? equifax handles alot of checks too they will fight hard to keep your credit report plastered.

p.s. WAMU didn't check my online application through CHEX. Only in person at a bank would they check it. This was 2 years ago. I was denied due to not having a residence for 2 years on credit file (EXPERIAN). I went to a local credit union who only checked equifax <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0> who gave me $9K overdraft (no fee to use), $6K platinum card, and checking and savings for their $15 share purchase. Not bad. The checking is free too with direct deposit. Very friendly folks.

Check out credit unions.
