I received the 2nd check but my friend pushed me into a swimming pool the night before I went to cash it and it got wet. My bank teller couldnt read the account number as a result and asked me to have it reissued. I called the phone number listed for the case and its a non-working number. How do I get the check re-issued?
Thanks.

I too received my check. However, I accidently ripped part of the routing number when I tore on the perforation. I called Citi Bank and know the missing digit, but my back will not cash it because of the high chance of it being returned.
I am trying to get in touch with LF vs WF and I assume there is a number on the letter that was attached. Can anyone help me reach out to them? I need a new check issued.
