The internet is no stranger to fraud, but if you’ve ever tried to buy a home in Canada or the United States with cash, you’re in for a rude awakening. 

“It’s a whole different ball game, and you’re dealing with more people,” says Brian Cramer, senior research analyst at financial intelligence firm Kroll Analytics. 

If you’re a Canadian resident, it’s a different story. 

You can make a deposit online with the CIBC bank, but you’ll have to have a physical bank account to make the payment, according to the bank. 

The CIBC website says it will only allow you to make cash payments of up to $50,000 ($1,500 in the U.S.). 

“If you want to get into a bank and make a purchase with the money, it would be best to go to another bank, like a bank that has more traditional methods,” says Cramer. 

What is a cashier’s check?

A cashier check is a check with a signature and signature confirmation, but unlike a credit card, it doesn’t require you to open a new account. 

A cashier is the person who opens the account.

A cashIER doesn’t have the same authority as a bank employee, Cramer explains. 

In order to open an account with a cashIER, you have to go through the online form and complete a few steps. 

First, you will have to upload the payment to the CIBS online account, which is also called an account number. 

Then, you’ll need to log in to the site and make the online payment. 

After you have made the payment and the CIOS online account has verified your payment, you can use the CIIB online banking to make your purchase. 

Cashier checks are accepted at the bank that you’ve chosen. 

However, they’re not accepted by banks in Canada. 

CIBC’s website says, “We do not accept cashier checks for the purposes of making purchases on the CIBI Canada or CIBC US websites.

We ask customers to ensure they have an accurate payment history and access to their account information.” 

How to open up an account online with a CIBS? 

When you open an online account with CIBS, you must do the following. 

Go to the online checkout page and choose to accept or decline the offer. 

Once you’ve selected the offer, you won’t be able to make a payment until you make the cashier checkout. 

Next, you should be prompted to set up a credit or debit card, according a CIBC spokesperson. 

Now, you need to make payment and select the payment option that works best for you. 

Click the “Pay Now” button, and the payment will be processed. 

There are different payment options available, including the traditional payment option. 

All you have left to do is pay the amount you want and wait for your payment to arrive. 

How long does it take to get a cash payment? 

Cashiers are typically hired to make transactions in a given time frame, but they can’t always deliver in a timely manner. 

Cramer says the average wait time for cashier deposits is about 30 to 60 days. 

With online banking in place, however, he says it’s much quicker. 

When the CIBA says a deposit has been made, they are usually able to get an order in about three to five business days, he adds. 

Is CIBS safe? 

While it’s not a big threat, it is a major risk, says Cramers partner, Eric Cramer of Kroll. 

It’s not something you can easily avoid, and there are several ways you can become a victim of online banking fraud. 

As Cramer says, it can be a bit difficult to be aware of and be vigilant.
