I'm all for making things right, but since you don't have the check numbers I would definitely not write out new checks. At best tell them they will have to wait a few months till you can figure out what 2 check numbers they are. You would then need to ask your bank if there are 2 and only 2 checks that are not cashed from the sequences you have issued. I have to agree with the others also that it sounds crazy to write out checks from multiple check books at a time and not have cc, nor fill out a register. You really are putting yourself at huge risk. If someone stole a check from one of your many books, you have NO way to know. Would you even notice a charge of $500 from your bank? You don't see who cashed your checks on your bank statements, right?

No I would not notice if someone cashed a check out of my book that I did not write. ....My wife does it on a regular basis...I haven't actually balanced a check book since sometime back in 1984.

I'm sure getting a sneaky feeling that this whole thread is a joke. Surely no one actually does as you claim to do. And it's not even April Fools day.:laughing:

Nope.. I actually got a call from some agency in California this morning that said they are representing UPS and I told them the same as I have said here. The guy was a complete dick and I basically said if you can't tell me the check # than I can't help you. He got all pissy and said just write another one less a stop payment fee... Duh... I then told him my bank will honor a check up to 360 days after its date and to call me next year. Had he not been such a jackhole at first, I would have been more helpful

A call from someone representing UPS? Now it is starting to sound like someone is Phishing. I would tell them you paid in full at time of delivery. Anything that they lost after you fulfilled the COD requirements is on them.

Definitely reads like it's phishy.
Tell them you need it in writing in a year.

When I drove for UPS back in the 80's, I had a dozen customers that ran businesses out of their homes and they would all get COD shipments. At that time, cash was still allowed. Every COD that I received, cash or check, went into an envelope and then into a safe in the truck. When I got back to the barn, I parked the truck, turned in my paperwork and told my supervisor that I had COD's in the truck. I couldn't open the safe or get into it. Whatever happened to the money after I got back, I never knew.

A few years later, a driver was killed when somebody tried to rob him and get into the safe. After that, they changed their policy to never accept cash.

While I don't know how it works today, I find it very hard that a driver could lose two COD checks. UPS is almost militant in how you do things. From what hand to hold your key when getting in and out of the truck, to where you put everything. They send supervisors out just about every day to spy on the drivers and do surprise inspections to make sure they are doing it the way UPS wants it done. All the supervisors are former drivers, so it's very hard, if not impossible to get away with doing something that isn't allowed.

I have not either. I do have carbon behind all my checks though. I just quick scan my balance every month. Have not balanced anything since early 90's

Why is this your problem ?
You have proof you paid the driver by cheque.
Now shouldn,t the missing cheques be their problem ?
