Hey Mike. I think just to be safe you should request an International Money Order. At least that way, it can be traced if necessary, and there shouldn't be a hold on it. If you get the cheque, and send the items only to find out the cheque is rubber, then you are out of luck.
Cheers Mike

> Hi List,
> Quick question for the dealers : have you ever heard of a US bank
> accepting a check from an overseas bank? Specifically, a check from
> India from an Indian bank that is affiliated with Bank of America, and
> the check in question will be drawn against Bank of America and can be
> deposited or cashed at any Bank of America?
> I ask because I received a request from an overseas customer and the
> request seems legit in other respects, but I am reluctant to deal with
> the kind of stuff where I have to walk in to the bank, speak to a
> supervisor and get it handled - it's a PITA and I'd rather just go
> through the drive-through and get my business done quick. And unless
> this is some form of Cashier's Check, there is no telling how long it
> will take for a check like this to clear and the funds to become
> available.
