How Does ChexSystems Work?

ChexSystems is a database that banks use to determine if potential customers are too great of a risk to
the bank. Banks will report you to this system if they close your account for negative balances or if you
lied when you opened your account. The information can stay on the Chexsystems records for five to seven
years. Litigo can help you.
