Remember the Monopoly Bank Error Card?

September 8th, 2009 at 12:35 pm

I rembember loving the bank error card in Monopoly. I didn't know what a bank error was, but I knew it gave me an extra $150 dollars in case I later landed on the B&O.

Well, our fine mortgage company didn't pull out the mortgage payment this month. Earlier in the month when I checked in with them, the automated telephone banking system advised me that they were undergoing maintenance and that pending payments would be credited by the 5th. Sure enough, now the telephone banking system tells me that I am current, my payment having posted on the 4th. The only problem? None of the $ was ever taken out of the checking account, and my bank says that no payments are pending.

Unfortunately, this is wreaking havoc on my financial mental wellbeing. I'm just getting used to my decision to stop hand inputting receipts into Money, and now I'm downright edgy about accidentally overdrawing the account -this giant missing transaction isn't making me feel any better.

Until the lender works this issue out - it's "do not pass go" at our house.

    Wow, scary! I hope no one tries to penalize you since this is clearly not your fault.

    Ugh, I can't imagine. You just prompted me to check and mine came out on the 1st as scheduled. To be honest, most everything is so automatic in this household that I wouldn't even notice if the mortgage wasn't taken out!! It probably sounds strange to most folks, but it would make sense if you understood the workings of the finances in this house. We can't use our checking account for every day purchases anyways - bill paying only. I closely monitor credit cards due to DH's ADD. Believe it or not, it works VERY well for us.
