Its not legal, but it isn't illegal.

Just try and deposit it and if they give you any trouble there are a few things you can say.

1 - The funds are from a large online service provider, and the funds were sent to me at my request.

2 - I invested in my college roomates business based in the country on your check, and these are my dividends in return.

3 - I sold some items on Ebay and this is the check I received in the mail.

Nothing can/will happen to you if the check is less than 10 grand. Banks need your business, if they refuse to cash your check (they most likely won't, but never know) Tell them you are going to switch banks and never come back.

I've deposited over 50 checks from offshore sites into my account and never came across anything bad. (I've gotten some weird looks and questions, but thats all)

Whatever you do, DO NOT MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT GAMBLING, POKER OR OFFSHORE SITES..EVER.

Also never try to cash the check, always deposit it and wait for it to clear before you take the money out.

This will avoid a lot of hassle and headache if the check should happen to bounce.

Most likely the direct deposit wont work.

It will most likely just not accept it, thats what happened everytime I tried.
