Pampered Chef: Bank Question

  1. I have a separate account for my business. I don't use it for ANYTHING other than P.Chef. I had a show last week in which the host insisted on writing one check for the entire order. I normally don't do it this way but when she dropped off the $ for the show, only my husband was home. I had made it clear that checks from the show could be made out to me, but apparantly she didn't listen. Anyway, I didn't make a big deal about it and deposited her check - which bounced. I called her and she came and brought cash right away. The problem though is that P.Chef did the debit for her show and of course, there wasn't enough in there to cover. (It was a rather large show). I got a notice from the bank today. The correct amount (plus extra as I've now learned my lesson) is there now. Will P.Chef try to do a second debit or will they contact me first? Am I in trouble over this? I don't want to lose my debit priveleges over this.

    Guidelines are explained in detail in your Recipe for Success.
    Short answer: No, they aren't going to hang you from your toes on a first offense without trying to run it through a second time.

    I actually just found it in RFS. (I NEVER think to look there first, DUH!)

    Bounced check!

    I hope you had her pay for your bank fines!! That's horrible. I have never had a check bounce on me. I always have the host pay me one check for everything. I only take single checks when I know everyone or almost everyone at the show. I have had trouble with check credit cards from the same bank from guests or hosts (my bank) because of security reasons they had to be entered manually. :confused:
