A trip to the post office found some mail from Chase:
Amid the dysfunctional noise coming from the East, one has to wonder: Do our financial overlords know that the country south of Seattle will no longer be using dollars from Federalreservistan? Go long tin foil! We’ll need quite a lot of it on our heads to explain why Chase thinks their own check is in “a foreign currency”.
That all said, it’s an unremarked wonder that ATM machines can handle a bunch of random checks with little fuss or muss. That technology is yet another modern miracle. To avoid this sort of goof, though, I would suppose that they could digitally sign the data from the check and put the data and sig on the check in OCR-able form.
