How to cancel a Wells Fargo personal check?

This is how to cancel a Wells Fargo check as of Sept 21, 2011.

  1. Login to your WF account.
  2. Click “Account Services”, it’s among the top tabs the 5th one counting from the left.
  3. On the next page, Under “Account Services”, find “Stop Payment on a Check”, should be the 9th link.
  4. Then just follow the steps.

You will need to have the info on the check #, the amount, payable to, and signed date.

Update: It turns out there is a STOPPING PAYMENT FEE of $29… =(

    Will a stopped wells fargo check appear to the recipient as (1) insufficient funds (2) stopped check (3) something more vague?

    The fee is now $31. The WORST part, though, is that the check is only cancelled for SIX MONTHS!!! What a rip off!

    What a rip off! I sent my daughter a check and she never received it. So I inquired about what to do because I was worried that somebody might try to cash it. Now I find out that it cost me $31 and after 6 months it will be active again. Really! They don’t tell you these things. 🤬
