EXPIRED

A Cheque for Me from NPower but they got my 1st name wrong, can I still cash it?

I got a £100 cheque from nPower today (a year after I left them) as my account was £98 in credit on leaving them, thing is they have spelt my christian name with a Ch and not a K, the rest of the details are correct surname, and address on the letter above the cheque. Will my bank (natwest) let me put it in my account or will I have to phone up N Power to get a new cheque issued.

Cheers

Should be fine.

give it a try, and pretend you haven't notced. you have nothing to loose!

enjoy spending your £98

If its not for huge amounts then it should clear without any problem.

want any suggestions on what to buy her. I like spending other peoples money!

They don't really check that well, I cashed a check that was made out in my maiden name, and I have been married 5 years, and they didnt even notice!

I'll second this....I was told unofficially that banks are not interested in meticulously scrutinising the details of cheques unless they are of a significant amount...basically they look at the depositing account number and the amount on the cheque and post it to the account. Obviously they scan the cheque for the magnetic ink details to verify that its a genuine cheque, but thats it I think. :thumbsup:
