I've got a pc financial account and wrote a check for the end of the month that was a Sunday. I called on the Friday afternoon and ask for a stop payment and to my horror they said it had already cashed! I was then informed that as soon i write the cheque it could be cashed and that they don't pay any attention to the date on it, the cheque is not checked! I later talked to someone else who said that if there's enough time they can try to get the money back for the other's bank. So i'm little dismayed now about written post dated cheques. Can someone clear this up? I'm think i need a separate account now just to write posted dated cheques that way i can just keep in empty until it's time to pay.
