I'm not knowledgeable about business stuffs, legal stuff, and so on.
But I was trying to understand, A) how possible is it for someone from another "developed" country to mail a cheque directly to my house? (I live in Singapore)
B) If it's not possible just for just any "developed" country to mail a cheque directly to my house, does limiting the scope to just US and UK make it possible?
C) What gotchas do I have to lookout for? (like specifying that they be in a certain currency, I'm not so bothered by bad rates of currency-changing, but rather more of the fact that that currency doesn't even get accepted in the first place)
D) Say if the cheque is addressed to my name, even if it is intercepted halfway no one could actually cash out the cheque right (unless someone else in the world happen to have an exact full name as me which I believe is hardly possible) ?
I am aware of the fact that until I actually cash in the cheque and can see the actual amount in the bank, I cannot ever gaurantee that the money will reach me because scammers are incredibly intelligent and experienced.
