My Mom sent me a check for my birthday. I deposited it in my account. The bank now charges $10 to process an overseas check. I asked what if it was a $10 check? The teller said the bank won’t take checks for $10 or less anymore. I asked what if it was an $11 check? The teller asked if I wanted to talk to the manager. I said I wanted to see it in writing. She instantly produced the document.
I’m going to tell my Mom not to send any birthday checks anymore.
