You really should just make a joint account. Makes things so much easier.
I'd love to write history... in advance.

I have written personal cheques way over $10,000 before. I am not sure of the limit, but I once wrote a cheque for almost $70,000 when I was paying a contractor several years ago.

My wife has come into a bit of money due to her role in a successful kidnapping/extortion scheme. She's going to max out her TFSA and then we want to transfer about 30k to max out mine. She can't transfer direct from her Simplii account to my Questrade account, something we learned the hard way, not long ago. Can she just write me a personal cheque? I thought there was a $10k max on personal cheques but I can't find any indication of that despite scouring Simplii's site. We both bank with them but have individual accounts, nothing joint.

TIA.

Joint account is the easiest way for you two to transfer the money.

But we are all eager to learn how to get involved in this type of lucrative kidnapping/extortion scheme. Teach us, pretty please.

How long has you and your wife been married?

Where is your marriage certificate?

No marriage certificate but the two of you lived together for so long that she is practically your wife?

I guess the money handler want to make sure your wife truly wants to give you 30,000 dollars.

I don't believe there is a limit on the size of the cheque, I've seen lottery winners holding up cheque the size bigger than my desk, it took multiple people to hold it up for the camera.
