Do All Banks Not Accept people reported?
Absolutely not. Just because banks that use their database, and have information about your banking history, and may be alerted that you could be a potential risk for the bank. Doesn’t mean that the bank won’t work with you to set up a banking relationship. However this is of the bank branch managers to decide the majority of the time it depends on what you were listed for? If it was an overdraft vs suspected fraud activity they may overlook the overdraft by deny someone with suspected fraud. ChexSystems is a reported information system, not a decision making system and each bank will make up their own mind whether or not to allow you to set up new accounts. Some banks have special terms for bad banker checking accounts, and will work with you even if you are a moderate risk. Others will ask you to open up a secured checking account where you provide valuable materials as collateral to help reduce the amount of risk that the ChexSystems bank has on creating your account.

You are free to call around and ask some of your local banks directly.
