Keep Your Bank Deposit Slips – They Could Be Worth Thousands

Keeping your deposit slips may be worth thousands – of your own dollars. A local bank customer tells TLS he deposited several thousand dollars in cash and checks to an area bank, and then left town on business.While out of town however, about three days after the deposit, the customer went online to check his deposit and realized there was no record of the transaction.

But it wasn’t the first time it had occurred.

The customer says he had a similar incident a couple months earlier with the same bank, and lost about $900 after the bank claimed he never made the deposit. But he since he didn’t keep his deposit slip, the bank could not reimburse him for his deposit as there was no proof of his claim.

So this time, the customer kept his deposit slip, and when the bank said they had no record of the deposit, he brought them his deposit slip to prove it. He was immediately reimbursed for his deposit.

So until you see you’re deposit appear in your account, it may be a good idea to keep the evidence. TLS-CPM.

  1. what doesnt make sense is if he lost 600 the first time why didnt he change banks? I surely would have pulled my accounts from the rouge bank.

  2. Hey! The same thing happened to me at (moderated) Drive-Thru ATM on Madison Ave. The cash deposit amount was only $40.00 but still made a difference to me. Luckily I had kept my slip and only had to spend a few minutes getting my money back.

  3. It’s interesting that everyone is quick to want to know the name of the bank. Remember, this is all hearsay. TLS heard this story from ONE person. Would you shut down someone’s business based on hearsay from ONE person?

    Would you report someone to the police based on hearsay from ONE person?

    You would all scream “it’s mesirah”. “It’s lashon hara”.


  4. I had the same thing happen to me but b”h I had a deposit reciept. Even then they gave me. HArd time confirming it etc. It took a week till my check eventually cleared

  5. I really don’t think it makes a difference to me what bank it is. (If an employee thought they can get away with thievery, it can happen in ANY bank.) I appreciate being notified of this potential issue. I used to shred my receipts. I will now save them for review on my monthly statements. If they are there, then I will shred them then.

  6. Could be a simple error due to a sloppy deposit slip.
    I once had 12,000 appear in my account.
    Spoke with Citibank’s manager, they did a search for a 12,000 deposit by time, found the transaction preceding it and following it and were able to track down the correct depositor. It works both ways.

  7. Samething happenned to me several years ago with a $10,000 cash deposit in a (moderated) bank.
    This tall lady cashier must be fired if she’s constantly stealing!

  8. It does happen at many banks. It happened to me once at a bank outside of Lakewood, but I had the deposit slip. If not, my deposit was about to be put into some random guy’s account (they put it into a totally different account number than the one I wrote – it wasn’t like they transposed one number or anything). They acted as if it was just another mistake and didn’t seem too concerned. The bank rhymed with
    (moderated) (I hope that one can get past you moderator guys!)

  9. To the people who want TLS to name every bank that some anonymous poster puts out there, even though it could mean loss of business for someone else, and even though TLS has NOT substantiated the claims………..

    Do you want some anonymous person claiming on a website that YOU, yes YOU, are a child molester? Or that YOU, yes YOU, are a thief? Is that how we run our lives? Every anonymous poster can just make unsabstantiated claims against anyone else BY NAME?????

    I am frankly shocked that people would even contemplate that TLS publish names of banks based on unsubstantiated claims of ANONYMOUS POSTERS.

    You don’t need the name of the bank. You just need to remember to ALWAYS keep your receipts until your deposits show up on your bank statements.

  10. TLS should verify the Legitimatesy of the story prior to posting it and then mention the name of the bank !! Not just post s/o half baked rant !! – and even if it happened to ONE person that’s 1 person too many !!

  11. it happened to me in (moderated) bank that i would punch in @ the ATM $100 and they would diparse $40 so no matter how many times i complained to them it happends again and again -perhaps this blog will get them some flack and fix thier costumar service
