Chexsystems is a Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and other laws. Under the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) amendments to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), they are subject to the same rules and regulations. Chexsystems monitors and reports on your banking activities. It looks for unusual or suspicious banking transactions, overdrafts, cashing checks against insufficient funds and not meeting minimum account balances.Many banks and credit unions use chexsystems when opening a deposit account to determine if the account should be opened.

ChexSystems is a type of credit reporting agency. The debt would be to the bank which listed your debt with ChexSystems. List the bank to which you owe money with ChexSystems as an "additional address" so that both the bank and ChexSystems will both receive notice and your debt can be removed from ChexSystems database as well. However, the BANK is the creditor, NOT ChexSystems. Be sure to list the bank. *I am not a licensed attorney and this answer should not be construed as legal advice.
