So many people ask me about Second Chance checking. Yes there are some banks that do offer second chance checking.
There are banks that offer second chance checking that will give accounts regardless of what the chexsystems report says. Then there are others that will offer second chance checking but there are exceptions. Example.. if the report reads " fraud" they will not. Some do not care what is reported as long as you do not owe the reporting bank(s) any money Yet others do not care if money is owed.
So it really all depends on each bank. The ones that do offer second chance checking all seem to have different ways to determine is a person is eligible or not.
There are some banks that use chexsystems and they do not offer second chance checking but they will still open an account for someone on chexsystems depending on what the report reads.
When you are considering a second chance checking account, it is always best to get a free copy of your chexsystems report and make sure you know what it actually says. Then it is important to know exactly how the bank determines if you can get an account there. But yes, there are banks that will deny those reported to chexsystems for second chance accounts. Second chance checking does NOT always mean that you will for sure get an account.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
