Boooo My Bank


When I go to my bank's website it shows my checking account number as being 12 digits. So I enter those 12 digits and the routing number from my checks into another bank's website in order to pay off my (new! shiny!) Starbucks credit card. I get a letter from the credit card people: we have returned your payment, your bank says the account number is invalid. We didn't charge you for a returned payment... this time. Please pay us asap.

So I call the credit card people--I have indeed entered all the numbers correctly, no typos. So what, praytell, is the problem?

A long, phone-treed call to my bank clarifies all: my checking account number is 10 digits, not 12. Those two extra zeros on the website? Just for show. (?!?!?)

Why can't they say that on the website, or take the two zeros off? I was worried this might negatively affect my fledgling credit report. (Apparently it won't.) It just makes me... grrrrrrrr. Not cool.
