I have read with interest on this money exchange/checks US vs Canadian
About 6 months ago I had the
pleasure of having someone do a look up at the Archives...there was a
price set, job completed and was very pleased...she asked that payment
be made in cash US because the banks in Canada charge $5 to $10 to cash
the check...or they charge against her account...
Then, shortly afterwards I had another
occasion to send money for service, and they too asked me to send
cash...the same reason...now, it didn't
matter to me...except in the loss of the letter they would be out...but,
in light of this ongoing thread, does this ring true?
