THE CHECK : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

How soon can I cash the check from CapitalOne dated August 16, 2098 They just sent it to me and I will have to wait 99 years and 11 months to get the money... Jerry



You've just got to learn to be more patient. Just make a note in your Daytimer to pull the check out for deposit when the time comes! .

See! And you guys thought that banks wouldn't be able to handle dates after 1999! ;-)

After doing some extensive research, I've learned that CapitalOne is a subsidiary of BankBoston. :)-

Having already seen this crop up on one other thread, I wanted to post here just to keep things straight: CapitalOne is NOT a subsidiary of BankBoston.

It was a joke, and a pretty good one too. I laughed, and I was the butt of the joke! (Go ahead, take off with that one. Have fun, gys!)
