    I went to the bank yesterday to deposit my affiliate check and they rejected my check
    because the name doesn't match exactly.

    The name on the check is Fname Lname
    The name on my ID is Lname Mname Fname (Common name format here)

    Is this normal or are they just being a dick towards me?
    I'm reluctant to reissue the check because it took CJ more than 1 month to
    mail this check to me.

    P.S.
    Any idea how to get paid without waiting for a month for the check to arrive?

    Sounds like the bank is being a little picky... can you deposit it via ATM so there is no human involved?

    Is there such a thing?
    Not all banks here accept international check.
    I have to go a specific bank to deposit that check and they told me that.

    Where are you from? What is the banking procedure in your country?

    I'm in the USA and although it has been a bit of time since I have actually seen an incoming check (everything I do is wire) we can make a deposit using an ATM no problem.

    Open a new account at another bank and use the name listed on the check. Or open a business account and use the name.
