Money Question: Checks

Recommended Posts

if people want next day shipping then they should use an instant payment method... not antiquated cheques... honestly, it probably would be faster to drive over to your house and give you the cash...

 

cheques... pah

Yes and no. That is sort of how they are thought of, but they are easily counterfeited.. I know of someone who deposted a MO that looked like it was from Citibank, saw the money in his account and shipped the goods. a few days later noticed it was gone. the bank thought it looked good on first look, so they credited his account, it turned out o be couterfeit and he was SOL.

 

However if you insist on a USPS money order, you can go down and get it cashed at the post office, no way of them taking the money back at that point.

I had him wire transfer the money over. The people at my bank said it was safe. It'll show up tommorow morning. And if it shows up, it means it cleared. It cost $20 bucks though.

You can call his bank and check the check to see if he has money in his account. I know major retailers do it when people pay with checks over a certain amount. The account number is on the check as well as the bank, it couldn't hurt to give them a call.
