Just got information that California Bank & Trust is starting to Non chexsystems checking account.Some reports that if you can show that all incidents have been paid accordingly without any bank problems,and also you can convince them you are not planning to do anything stupid like abusing your checking account with them, perhaps then can make an exception to their ChexSystems policy.Some said they will grant you an account.But it may differs from bank branch to branch since not the same person handling the account banks.California Bank & Trust had branches at TherHacienda Heights, Crenshaw, Pomona, Torrance-Del Amo, Gardena, Costa Mesa, La Palma, Long Beach, Oxnard, Alpine, Carlsbad, Temecula, Kearney Mesa, Vista, and La Jolla have all been reported as good without chexsystems bank check. However,Mountain View, Hacienda Heights and downtown Los Angeles were reported as bad.But it doesn't hurt to try it either in case they already changed and accept non-chexsystems method.
Good news is that,it is conform First Bank & Trust in Irvine reportedly is willing to overlook a negative in your ChexSystems report. Call (949) 551-6828 for directions. There are other First Bank & Trust branch locations throughout the Orange County and other parts of California.Perhaps you can do some work and start searching one.Perhaps you can share it here in the comments.
