you can may be able to deposit in your bank account, check with your bank

both probably need id

also depends on the size of the check how soon it will clear

the bank may charge a fee

This was going back about 10 years and I'm doing it from memory, but there was a place called something like Bank Azteca in Chapala that would cash US checks. Unfortunately you needed lots of identification.

Have you deposited in your US bank while here in Mexico using your phone and photo of check? That would really be valuable.

If you have a scanner function on your printer, you can do it directly into your US bank account. Look for "Making Deposits" on your US bank's website.

Depends on the bank. Tried it with Capital One and they said they would not do that while I'm out of the country. I tried it with a VPN and they still knew I was not in the USA.

It must not be hard to cash a US check as I have had three government checks cashed, one from Florida and two from Texas, and I never even received them. It is obvious that the local mail people are thieves and forgers. Now I have to do three fraud affidavits and hope the local bank(s) that cashed them get to eat it.

Do you mean US Postal workers in FL and TX? 

Or Mexico Postal workers? 

Or the local mail forwarding companies here at Lakeside?

I had a check written by a local hotel owner that was drawn in US dollars from a bank in Texas. I have an account at HSBC and they would not cash it. Instead I had to take it to iShop and mail it to my bank in Canada for deposit. From iShop it went to Texas via courier where it was put into the US postal system. A very slow process. It still hasn't arrived a month later.

Many US banks apps have a scan with phone and deposit function.  Also brokerage like Etrade, Fidelity, Schwab, etc. Mine let me deposit Us checks while in Mexico.
