Carrier lost my checks

   / Carrier lost my checks #41  
UPS may have lost the check(s), but they appear more than willing to correct the problem and as well willing to pay for the cancellation fee of the lost checks. Both parties are at fault, UPS for misplacing the checks and the OP for not maintaining a record of the check number which should have been done regardless of how a check may have been lost or misplaced. The retailer/vendor that sold the goods is waiting for his money at this point and if the OP doesn't resolve it, that retailer likely won't be shipping anymore items to the OP and if left long enough could hire a collection agency to recover the funds. The OP has to pony up the money somewhere, as UPS isn't likely to lose and pay up. Of course if UPS did cover the COD charge, then there's a chance no money would be withdrawn from the OP's checking account and he'll have gotten his stuff for free. Check isn't real money, only an authorization to withdraw funds from the account of the person that wrote the check :)
Wonder how much the OP pays out in COD fees yearly that are likely tacked on somewhere?:)

The vendor was paid. " My vendors have been paid by UPS ( directly ) so I'm in fine standing with them".

I am of the opinion that UPS should be written checks again, however not till he is able to have the necessary info needed. In my business have had checks to us that were not cased in timely manner and never had a problem getting replacement checks. Then I had the old check and they company could verify it had not be cashed and have been good about replacing those when it happens. That is why I am right sure the time limit in a check is 6 months and no longer per us banking regulation but a company or person has the right to have printed on the check a shorter time period and also have a policy of NO replacement checks. If his post the driver said the check numbers were recorded is correct then why would UPS not be willing to help by providing that info, at least the bank they were written on? Would you not?
I have not gotten the impression he is not willing to just needs help figuring out how to know what account.

But along that line have had to stop payment on check a few times for various reasons and guess it varies by bank for ours wants the amount it was written for and nothing else. Then if all his banks were willing to do that and he has as many accounts as he stated the stop payment fees could total as much as the check amount. I do agree record the checks...

My experience with COD is that the vendor does not receive the funds until UPS has processed the check and mailed it or electronically deposited it for the vendor. There is a UPS service that a vendor can use to accelerate payment to within a few days, but I do not believe UPS is in the business of short term loans. I did not see anything on the UPS site that would lend the idea they pay a vendor up front.

I had to receive a UPS COD delivery once due to an a$$hat ebay buyer returning an item. The check I wrote was made out to "UPS-John Doe" and the check was physically sent to and cashed by John Doe in the city where he resided..

The OP may believe the vendors were directly paid, but I wouldn't count on that.

I can only go by what the OP said.

Both of my vendors were paid from UPS. I assume once they agree to be the middle man in a COD delivery, they assume the responsibility for paying the original sender. So to repeat, vendors have been paid by ups , not by my checks. I have receipts for my shipments and COD charges. I do NOt have my original check #s, My bank will NOT stop payment without a check #.

If you have a smartphone, take of a picture of the checks you use for COD to avoid problem in the future if you don't want to keep better records. Of course, if you are like me, it takes a minute for me to take that picture if I have my phone with me and it seems everyone (including me) is always in a hurry.

Wish I had enough money that I didn't need to worry about check numbers or balancing my checkbooks. :D :cool2:

Apparently the OP is loaded and doesn't have to worry about money. He has 8-10 checkbooks lying around, doesn't record check numbers, and hasn't balanced a checkbook since 1984. Maybe we can get him to write us a check.
