How can I get my employer to give me copies of my paychecks?

I need 3 months proof of wages to purchase a vehicle. My employers refuse to get the copies I need. I asked at

the bank and was told my employer needed to get them for me and today I asked again and they told me no.

There really is no way to make them give you copies of the checks in these circumstances; your employer is not required to help you out when you are applying for a loan. In the future, make sure you keep paystubs and/or make copies of checks before cashing or depositing them.
