I would never have guess that certified checks are no longer safe and cash money is suspect as to the origin.
I guess money is getting to be a true 'virtual reality'. Some computer adjusting numbers for an account number.
When the number gets to zero - you are broke and can't buy any more.

The following is a true story as I was there. About five years ago I was at a Seattle area car show with some friends, all of us from the Spokane area. One of them transacted a sale for his Corvette at the show. The buyer, who was there with his girl friend, left a cash deposit and then came back about two hours later with a cashier's check from Washington Trust Bank for the full amount, so of course he got his deposit back.

On the way to his house the idiot buyer gets into a big fight with his girl friend. She comes back to the car show and informs my friend that the cashier's check is a forgery. My friend calls the bank and they confirmed the check was no good. He then calls the cops who go to the buyer's house arrest him, and called my friend to come pick up is car.

Girl friend got a reward and a free dinner compliments of my friend.

You mean if you walked into a dealership with a cashiers check they wouldn't take it for a cash sale?

I haven't heard anything about this good or bad-
Cashiers checks can be printed on any color printer.
You can buy one at a bank, then remove the funds. The bank no longer guarantees cashiers checks for just that reason.

We avoid certified checks in my business, I woud rather accept a personal check secured by a credit card then a certified bank check. My business bank (Chase) will clear a personal check faster then a certified check all because of fraud.

Wire transfer is the way to go!!

Ckecks of any kind are forged more so now than ever before because of the quality of copy machines and printers. I have sold three Motor homes of 70,110, and 120,000. One asked if he could bring cash and I said no but you can do a wire transfer. All three did and today it is the safest way to accept payment.
