If they do bank with WF, that's really bad that they're charging you and I'd complain to my employer.
The account was at WF, but it wasn't a paycheck. I would have just kept the check were it not for the inconvenience of it - might have taken a month or more to get to my bank - I'm a couple hours from the city. In hindsight the thing to do would have been just mail the deposit in to the proper bank.

Now my new job offers weekly pay and direct deposit, so I am okay with the bills for now. Problem is, with my former boss MIA (he's not answering the office phone either), I wonder how long it'll take for me to get my funds.

I could drive by to the office every other day in the early morning, but I'll be going in blind... meaning I'll have no idea if he's there or if anyone is there. This honestly stinks. Looks like paying back my friend for the loan will take a long while...
Glad to hear you got another job - sounds more and more like the first place is on the ropes.

I think you'd be better off going to their bank daily and seeing if the checks would clear. You might get lucky, and the bank wouldn't BS you the way your former boss has been doing. As another poster said you can google the routing number to find the bank name.

Prosopis, thanks for the clarification. I guess the charge makes sense since it wasn't a paycheck. Living away from a major city has some wonderful elements, but convenience isn't always one of them.

Sabiya, congratulations on the new job and glad you got it so quickly. Nobody was in at all? The entire company? Are the owners the only ones with keys? If not, it sounds like some of them were informed not to show up.

It sounds like they've closed their doors unofficially. Prosopis has a good suggestion in saying you could try going to their bank every day.

Good luck - I hope you're able to recover what is due you.

The owners were the ones with the keys only. Yeah, I hope I'll be able to recover what was owed. Lesson learned: don't work at a small start up T_T
