Actually the best way to get a cheque stopped for free is to say it went missing in the post!

If you want to stop a whole cheque book, just say you have lost it, probably on a visit to a large shopping centre, i.e. Trafford, Metro, Brents Cross, Bullring etc.

Banks will always stop a lost cheque book or a cheque that has gone astray in the post free of charge.

Doesn't say much for "Intelligent Finance" does it

Most banks will cancel cheques lost in the post. Even if they charge, you could approach Royal Mail as they're the ones who lost it - don't expect miracles from them as they don't particularly care about customer service... :rolleyes:

This can be a real problem, if you have a religious and/or moral aversion to lying, though.

Bit of an oxymoron there, I mean a bank called Intelligent Finance. Plus I think, but not certain, and stand to be corrected that banks are obliged under the Banking Code to stop free of charge lost or stolen cheques.
