Citizens Bank now charges $7 to cash a check drawn on Citizens Bank.  As a general proposition, it is an outrage.  Further, I do wonder whether it constitutes fraud, as traditional commercial law requires a bank to honor a check amount drawn on that institution, without any deduction for presentment.   Indeed, the check represents a statement that the full face amount shall be honored by the bank, and the imposition of the charge constitutes an abandonment of the traditional covenant as well as the bank's integrity.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

You wrote a lot of fancy words, I wonder how much of what you wrote you actually understand because you are totally incorrect.

Because of the amount of fraud, a bank is under NO legal obligation to cash a check drawn on one of their accounts if the person cashing it is a Non-Customer.  If they decide to cash a check it is also legal for them to charge a fee for this "service" for Non-Customers. 

If you want to avoid this fee then deposit the check in your own bank account.  If you don't have an account then this is unfortunately something you are going to have to deal with.

Here is a link to the Comptroller of the Currency, the agency that oversees banks, that will be of interest to you.
