No, at Wells Fargo drive through bank, ID is required for cash deposits.

Then just wait til midnight and use the night deposit slot. I wonder what the bank would do if you put the cash and deposit slip in the tube, and then drove away. Besides charging you a service fee.

Don't be so sure that would work. A few years ago we tried, in person, to make a cash deposit in our son's Wells Fargo account, in a town & bank branch where they knew us.
Long story short, it took some time to persuade them to accept our $500 in *cash*, yes legal US tender, and it took another several days before they credited it. Their explanation was "well, the policy is to prevent money laundering".

For the life of me, I don't know how WF stays in business. They're scum sucking bottom feeders.

A group of scum sucking bottom feeders called and said they resent being lumped together with Wells Fargo.

I was advised, when going through financial difficulties, to get away from Wells Fargo. I did. Went to a neighborhood bank, who treated me just fine.

Then just ask her where it is. You should have asked her about it right away, as soon as you noticed it was missing.

I'll give them a year or two. They will be bought by WF or somebody just like them.

How many places take checks anymore? And the photo on the ID? Unless they look alike I don't see how that would work.


But applying for stuff online, if they had the OP's SS number that could be a problem.

I did ask her right away, just wasn't accusatory or confrontational. I asked her to go back to the bank, but instead she went out, searched her car, and said she called them.

As far as credit is concerned, it can't be touched as our assets are in an LLC. This is just a minor annoyance. If she did these things, then she may feel what many criminals do, that they are so clever they are outwitting everyone. This is usually a delusion.

I was a victim of a big time ID theft last year (long story... I called a number listed online as Yahoo customer support number with a question about my e-mail account, and things escalated to the point where the ID thiefs, under the guise of helping me with a temporarily locked mail account sign-in, were able to sign into my e-mail account themselves... FYI, Yahoo DOES NOT have a phone number for their customer support service - you can reach them only online, and all "Yahoo customer support phone numbers" listed on the Internet are fraudulent).



Anyway, I had notified all of my financial institutions when I realized what happened, and I also purchased a comprehensive monitoring plan with credit freeze from Experian. It costs $20 per month, it monitors everything, and it will also compensate you for up to $1 million in otherwise unresolvable financial damages from ID theft. I intend to keep the plan for as long as I live, $20 per month is very little for the peace of mind.
