I've got a cheque for £1000 and might try and cash it in at The Money Shop or Cash Converters etc rather than wait for it to clear.
The sites make no mention of what the fee actually is, so does anyone know?
And will they cash a cheque over £750?
*pictures himself lay on the forum floor, chequeless, winded, and covered in peas*
Put it in the bank and let it clear.
Don't know what those sort of places take in commission but it will be a lot.
They will rip you off big time. Tell the bank to clear it express.
FWI banks have been told to make sure transfers and cheques clear quicker than the 'Oh that will take three days to show on your account@
I put a cheque in Yesterday and it showed on my account today.
I would put it in the bank (maybe ask them for a temp overdraft) it will not cost as much as cashing it via a cheque clearing place.
Pete (wondering if cheque clearing is run by the same people who run the 419 scams)
Well the cock-noses at Barclays said it'd cost £15 and would be cleared by MONDAY?!
WTF good is that Or I can clear it regualrly and it will be clear by Wednesday. Nobbers.
The Money Shop asked for £70 approx to cash a £1000 cheque instantly... but there's an offer in the Yellow Pages where I can cash it for 'only' 2.99%
I'm not sure which of the two are the biggest robbing wankers.
I know someone who used to do cheque cashing, he stopped because so many people were trying to scam him that it just wasn't worth the aggro anymore.
