# What happens if I write checks out of order?

0

I seldom write checks, but I need to in this situation. The bank I used sent me a box of 2 checkbooks. I wrote 2 checks in the first one and haven’t used it in a while. I left it at home in California while I went back to school in Miami. I will most likely need to write a check again, but all I have is the 2nd checkbook the bank sent me. Will I get in trouble if I write the check from the 2nd checkbook instead of the 3rd check from the 1st one? (I feel completely stupid asking this. And I’m in college! I wish they would have taught us basic finance like this in high school.)

Also Check This  What are the approximate solutions of 2×2 + x = 14 rounded to the nearest hundredth?

• Nothing at all happens. You can write checks with any check you have available. If you write a check with check #102 and your next check written is check #509, it means nothing. The bank doesn’t care. The check still clears.

• It just makes balancing your checkbook harder. If you don’t balance your checkbook to make sure the bank’s not ripping you off or making mistakes (they do make mistakes), then this will have no effect at all. Don’t worry about it.

I haven’t written a check in years. Doesn’t your bank offer a “debit card”. With a visa debit card, you don’t have to write checks, you just whip it out like a credit card and use it. It works to buy things on line or to pay through paypal too. Way easier than checks.

• Nothing…they are numered for purposes of tracking them….the order means nothing.

• nothing happens… but its ezer to keep up with the transactions by staying in numeric order

• Nada. Just keep track of them.

• nothing they will just tell (in your end of the month statement) u that u skip a check..

simple as that

• Whew. HTH.
