DOB: Check Cashers

File a Check Casher Complaint


How do I submit a complaint?

  1. Attempt to resolve the dispute by contacting the check casher to resolve your dispute.
     
  2. Determine whether the check casher is licensed by the DOB.  See check cashers licensed in Connecticut.  Go to Step 4.
     
  3. The Department of Banking also pursues complaints against unlicensed companies that are conducting check cashing activities for a fee with Connecticut residents.  If you have worked with a check casher that is not listed on the link in Step 2 above as licensed by the Department of Banking (DOB), it is an unlicensed check casher.
