Customer Question

I am interested in finding out if a lawyer can have the credit union place a tracer inquiry on a check that was written in the amount of 29,000 on 09/22/08 and cleared on 09/29/08? I want to ascertain who deposited the check and what institution the deposit was made since the credit union only goes back 7 years.

You could certainly hire a lawyer to make the request and, if they don't respond and you really want to pursue it, you could hire the lawyer to file a lawsuit and ask the court to order them to produce the information.

However, many credit unions do not keep information from this long ago. It seems to be common for them to keep the info for five to seven years.
