ChexSystems, Early Warning Systems

Please contact us if you have had problems opening or maintaining a bank account because of ChexSystems or Early Warning Systems.  These are two specialized consumer reporting agencies that handle reports from banks and other financial institutions concerning bank accounts.  They furnish information to financial institutions, often with the result that you can't open another bank account.  They are subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, just like Experian, Equifax and Trans Union.
