I got an email from TextLinkAds that they will immediately re-issue the two cheques plus bank charges for me. That’s fast service.
Actually, it was a miscommunication somewhere. The two cheques were delayed in the mail (blame it on our snail mail service) and I made some enquiries with TextLinkAds. In the process, they must have put a ‘stop payment’ order on them but I got the cheques a few days after that . I did email them that I received them. However, somewhere along, some info got lost and hence, the cheques were rejected because of the stop payment order.
Now, I have two cheques from TextLink Ads on the way to me again. With snail mail. Must keep fingers crossed that they don’t get lost in the mail again. That’s why I prefer to use PayPal and cash it out through Bryan. In total, I get less if I cash it out due to the currency exchange and the percentage charged by PayPal transaction. But considering the short time I get my money and no risk of cheques lost in snail mail, I don’t mind at all. I am going to get my TextLinkAds December 2006 commission and affiliate fees any day now, from Bryan. In cold cash.
One day…just one day…I may go open myself a foreign bank account and start to cash PayPal on my own. Nay…I am too lazy to do that. I don’t even have a local Malaysian bank account!

Do you have to pay a lot of charges to cash a foreign check? How bad does it get?
