We get cheques from the in-laws in the US quite often and I've never been
charged for cashing a US cheque in over 14 years. I bank with Royal, TD &
Canada Trust and haven't been charged, it's always been included in my
monthly bank charges for self-service. Usually there has been a ten day
hold on the cheques.

Hi its Barb from Bowmanville again, now with all our business we have
done for our Son, nothing of that nature has been mentioned but I shall
phone the bank to-day and let your know for sure. That is a very good
point. Thanks Barb
