    Turtle dove...if the measures you listed prevented someone from stealing money from your account, I am sure you would be supportive of the bank's caution. Not to worry...he didn't get fingerprinted before "cashing a forged check", but with the nice photo...I am sure fingerprints are in his near future.

    The check cashing policy at BB&T applies to all persons of all races, creeds, or whatever your beef is. It applies to current customers and non-BB&T customers as well. Learn your facts before you spout off.

    I'm surprised that branch let something like that happen the way they treat non-Caucasian patrons. I'm surprised they didn't make him provide a finger print and hold the check for 10 days or make sure he had the money in his account to cover the amount of the check.

    Nice picture, so someone should be able to identify this thief.
