Cheques not cleared even after 2 business days?

Me and my mom deposited cheques in our banks on Monday 30th at 9:30 AM. I asked the teller and he said that the cheque will clear by tomorrow night i.e. Tuesday 31st.

Me and my mom deposited cheques in our banks on Monday 30th at 9:30 AM. I asked the teller and he said that the cheque will clear by tomorrow night i.e. Tuesday 31st. But I just logged onto my mom's and mine internet banking account and the amount hasn't added up to the previous balance. Same is with my account, the amount shows up on current balance but still shows a lesser amount on the available balance. This just gave us a mini attack – my mom is not very techy. Is this a bank thing or does it have anything to do with the month closing? :/

Best Answer:

Ich sage: I hate to tell you…the check may not EVER clear. Sometimes they bounce. A check is nothing more than an I.O.U.

There is no set time by which a check WILL clear.

Sounds like either that bank got robbed or they are talking to the Feds about the checks legitimacy.
They're probably doing a background check on you and likely you will get fingerprinted and sent to prison if you're using meth

You can ask the bank, but I have a feeling that it will never clear…

You should call the bank and ask what's going on.
