A: Most commercial banks have an old saying they teach all tellers to rely upon: "Know your depositor." This wise advice also applies to regular people who open new accounts in the high-tech world of today--where fraudulent checks are now everywhere. Why would you expect Capital One to give you the cleared funds from the good check--when they have lost money on the other two checks you gave them that did not clear? Really?
