Do you know anything about Chexsystems?

I tried to open a checking account a few years ago and was unable to because they said that I was in Chexsystems. At the time, I didn't have the money to pay back the amount I owed to the bank, so I just went without an account. Does anyone know if this will fall off after a certain number of years or will I stay in chexsystems until I pay it off?

  • The best thing to do it call them, find out of it still exists, if it does then you might want to take care of it, or you won't be able to open an account anywhere... Here's a number I found, if it's not correct I'm sorry.... (800) 513-7125 GL

  • It stays there for five years unless the bank who put you on it removes it.
