It means that you did not have enough money in your bank account to fully pay the check that you wrote. The bank charges you a fee anytime this happens called an insufficient funds (NSF) fee. Sometimes the bank will go on and pay the check for you and push your account in to the negative the amount of the NSF fee and the amount that your account was short. Other times, like in this instance, the bank will return the check to the person that cashed it. When you check is returned, the bank will take out the NSF fee from your account, and if you account balance it is not sufficient, this will push your account into the negative for the balance. The bank will take the fee out of your next deposit. When a check is returned, the business that you paid by check will get it back and will remove the credit to your account. They will also usually charge you a returned check fee as well. You will need to call your creditor, tell them that you have a returned check coming to them and inquire what the new balance is with the returned check fee. The business that you paid will then most likely only accept cash, a money order or a cashier's check for the amount that you now owe and will most likely refuse to accept any more personal checks from you.

Carlisle Originally Answered: Why did captal one mention "insufficient pay down of mortgage accounts" in a letter?
Check your credit reports today at Annual Credit Report.com This is the only federally approved site to get your reports. Never fall for tv ads with silly songs that will charge you for them. Print out all 3 reports if you can. Carefully look to see if a previous car loan or student loan was named by mistake as a mortgage. OR... if you have been the victim of identity theft. This could easily be fixed - so don't panic - just ask here how to resolve it. Remember - that you are never responsible if someone steals your identity. You just have to do some work. /

The next time money goes into your account the bank will take out the charges. If you don't put money in the bank will send another letter out then just go up and pay telling them what the money is for the charge. If you know you will not be putting money in soon just go up and pay the fee.

It means you don't have enough money in your account to pay your bill. I think you should call/pay over the phone or actually physically go to the bank and pay for it.

i did no longer know you will get an overdraft from a debit card. they must be declined if there is inadequate money. have you ever written any tests in the final 2 wks or so? tests take a whilst to sparkling and it would desire to have been neglected. EDIT: close the Wells Fargo account and flow to a close by credit union. they're unfastened and lots greater advantageous than the likes of wells fargo...economic enterprise of united statesa. etc...

Robbie Originally Answered: Microsoft Word is giving me an error messege: "insufficient memory or disk space"?
Usually running out of virtual memory means that you are running too many applications at the same time for your system or one of them is attempting to use too much memory. Increasing virtual memory is one way of compensating for lack of RAM. However, it's optimum should be set at 1.5 times the amount of RAM on your computer. Virtual memory can be increased, but it comes with a risk if you increase it too much as it can eventually lead to hard drive damage. To increase VM on Windows XP (should be in similar locations for other versions) look in Control Panel: System, Advanced, Performance Settings, Advanced, Virtual Memory. You can see if your computer can handle more RAM at http://www.crucial.com/index.asp It's important to note that everything takes RAM. Not only security products (such as active anti-spyware, anti-virus and firewall) eat up memory but your operating system, active browser windows, running applications (such as Word, Gaming, Messenger, Photoshop, etc) and malware all compete for system resources. The presence of Malware (viruses, spyware, etc) will particularly eat up your system resources so you may want to run your resident security products such as antispyware and antivirus applications to ensure that your system is clean. (Note: Virtual memory is not the same as hard drive size)
