If you withdraw $10k or more the bank reports it to the feds, no big deal.

You can purchase a small safe and bolt into your camper in a hidden spot and you can also purchase one to do the same thing in your tow vehicle. They sell one that is made for the Chevy Silverado that bolts in to the center thing between the drivers and passengers seat (the thing the driver rests his right arm on). It is $$ but gives you peace of mind.

I always have more than $500 in cash when traveling. You don't have to keep it all in your wallet. Not a big deal.

I used to own a mail order company and I can tell you first-hand that forged cashier's checks have become all the rage since the advent of high resolution color printers. A trained eye can spot them immediately but your average person wouldn't have a clue. There was a huge rash of forged cashier's checks being passed using Craigslist awhile back so now most sellers are leery of them, and for good reason. Google "forged cashier's check" and see what comes up.

About safes
There is also something called a "Medicine Cabinet Safe" that is small enough to fit inside a standard medicine cabinet to be able to lock up high value/high risk Rx meds. The ones I bought are steel lined and have 2 heavy dead bolts for locking. I bought two of these on-line for $10 each and installed them, out of sight, inside my two trailers, but they will also fit out of sight in a vehicle as well. They won't stop a determined thief, but will discourage the "Snatch and Run" variety that are more common. They easily hold the 200 or so Ben Franklins I carry for gas money.....LOL

We don't need to do any direct reporting ourselves here in Canada either - any time you withdraw or deposit more than $10,000 in cash the bank automatically reports it.

When my wife was a bank teller over 20 years ago, any deposit over $10K was reported to the feds due to the war on drugs. It had nothing to do with terrorism back then. It's been going on a long time.

Cool Remote funds

When we travel, we only carry so much cash. When we need more we go to the nearest branch of our bank and cash a check. You only have to be sure there are branches near where you will need the money. We found that out in Yuma that there are no branches of our bank!
Here is an example of a bogus check. I think it had something to do with someone filing our income taxes before we did!

Notice it is under $10K. It also says "Cashiers Check". LOL
The original is in the possession of the IRS.
We have no idea who or what the names are.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
