Carte Blanche

I don’t own a checkbook. I didn’t get one because I was moving when I opened my bank account and I didn’t know what my address would be. Since being here the only check I’ve had to write was the one for my rent. I’ve been doing that through my bank’s online bill-pay.

I’ve been contemplating what to do about the check my landlord said he never received and was searching the internet. I ran across a lovely story of a guy who had his checkbook stolen and the twenty or so businesses where his checks were subsequently forged and accepted without ID. I’ve been trying to find something on if you had an already completed check stolen, but I am having trouble with the huge number of results for stolen checkbooks. One of my favorites is for this woman who was paid with her own check.
