Cheque guarentee being scrapped

Hi

Today the 24 bank and building society members of the UK Domestic Cheque Guarantee Card Scheme have announced that the Scheme will close on 30th June 2011, meaning that it will no longer be possible to guarantee a cheque under the Scheme after this date.

It's so long ago ago that I can't remember the last time I used a cheque guarantee card.
HSBC advised me about cards a while back but reminder is worthwhile so nobody accepts a cheque they think is guaranteed.

Re: Cheque guarentee being scrapped

my ex back up card has been replaced already, my newer one dated 12/09 is a Visa Debit from NW
we have one shop in town that wont accept cards and only cheques with a back up card, hard luck on them, they dont get my trade, about the only person who I give cheques to is my Dentist, he at the moment doesnt take cards
