When is the last time you wrote one? 

 

I did one last month for the first time in years and it felt so strange 😀

About 11 years ago to pay an electrician.

 

I still have a cheque book on both my main and 'bills' accounts but I think I'd have to blow the dust off them.

About a year ago - but I've paid lots in, probably close to 100 in the last year Smiley Wink

About three years ago! Useful if you want to leave a paper trail!

Clearly remember queueing behind a woman who was filling in one at the Tesco check-out till, and being amazed to see anyone still used them, and that would be about 15 years ago now!

I think they discontinued them cos got bank details and signature - makes it easy for identity theft?

 

They used to have all your account numbers on till receipts and one hotel up london I think was caught just dumping them in bins out back - so of course people rifled thru those and helped themselves.  Bit careless, was a posh place I think, maybe 20 years ago tho.  Spose fraud and they eventually worked out the link!
