Checks here are a breeze to cash, even the casinos cash them if say you don't have a bank account. BUT if the check is from outside the US the banks put a 15 day hold before cashing it.

i confused why would you go to a bank stand in a cue in a bank to get monie from a chequek and not just get it out of your bank account anyway, weer the cash be comming from?

I see the point if casinoes and such cash them for convienses. Dose all big busnesses cash cheques or is it the nature of people needing cash quick that has the casinos changing cheques to cash?

I thinking we can't get buy without a bank account heer but one possiblie could in usa.

Opening an account: It is as easy as falling off a log. Sometimes there is a minimum deposit of say $25.00 ut thats abbout it to open a saving or checking account.

Cashing checks: Its to cash checks from other people Celtic. I edit for a lot of people here in Nevada and they pay me by check. Sometimes I deposit them and take out cash but sometimes I just cash the checks without making a deposit first... However out of the country checks no one will cash for at least 10 to 15 days even if you deposit it thres a hold on that money until it clears.

We have check cashing stores in Texas. I'd be surprised if they aren't nationwide. They charge a fee to give you cash for the 'check.' For some, it must be worth it (illegals)... there's a check-stop on every street in town. Otherwise, in Texas, you can cash a check, whether drawn on your own account or that of someone else, if you have an established account with the bank you try and cash it with.
lola, our checks look very similar... lines, 4 in total - one for the date, one for the payee, one for the written amount, and the one on the bottom left for a description of the disbursement. And, of course the little box, or area for the numerical amount. I haven't seen a check without lines since I was a wee one.

Gims, the difference is in the pre-printed lines with pre-printed "Account Payee" across and in the centre of the cheque. That's how cheques look like here.

chatty and gims are right on with their explanations.

Most stores charge at least a $25.00 fee if you bounce a check, meaning write a check with insufficient funds. The bank also cahrges a fee. I saw a sign in the store the other day - $40.00 fee for bad checks.
