    That's what I thought, too.

    But it's not true. You can't. Banks now will not create a cashier's check except from an existing account.

    Nice, hunh ?

    Just for fun, go try. Go to a strange bank or credit union with $500 and try to get a cashier's check.

    I cannot even grok why one would WANT to do?

    Personal checks or EFT's have been good enough to better than $150,000 at a go.

    Corporate - not MY money - EFT on my phoned instructions topped at 1994 USD$ 78 million, single-instance.

    Five-small "bank checks"?

    Those are down in the noise with department store clothing purchases, PayPal and postal money orders. Even just groceries, two or three stores, same day, can easily top that these days, and auto repairs go ten times that.

    WTF was he "on about" this time?

    Seamoss/Goldfarb "Don't get no respect?" Do tell, and why is no one surprised?
