If you know anyone back in the States, you can always endorse your check over to them and then have them send you the money. (Obviously you need a friend or family member you trust.)Thank you for your reply. Looks like I’m not going to be able to cash my stimulus check then. Oh well. C’est la vie.
I’ve already tried that. My dad sent me a check from somewhere for about 50 dollars. I signed it and sent it back but he told me he tried his bank and they wouldn’t cash it because I didn’t have an account with them. I believe he tried Wells Fargo and they said the same. I suppose I could try it again. Maybe he could go to another bank instead.If you know anyone back in the States, you can always endorse your check over to them and then have them send you the money.

Have you asked your bank in Thailand if they can process a US check for you? It'll cost you part of the check amount (but probably well under $100, leaving you with the bulk of the windfall). Friend of mine in Germany said her German bank didn't bat an eye. Or try whatever you have in the area that is an "international bank" - HSBC, for example.
Sounds like you don't have a banking account in Thailand either.Well yes I’ve done that and his bank didn’t accept it. Said I didn’t have an account with them so they couldn’t cash it. It also happened with my grandmothers check as well. Since she didn’t have an account with my dad’s bank my dad couldn’t cash it. Granted, he belongs to a garbage bank, Bank of the West, with very few locations, but I doubt he will leave them. I’m trying to get him to open an account at a credit union, which is far better, but he really doesn’t want to go through the process of opening another account and having his pension check direct deposit elsewhere. Still trying though.
