I have a friend...

I have a friend who has been in China for 4 years. He completed a 3 year construction job in 12/16 and was paid by a US company $2.4 Million dollars. Out of that check he had to pay his co-workers 240,000 dollars. However , he can't cash or deposit that check in China because of the amount. Therefore, he is still in China What can he do?

No

Does he have an account with a bank in China that also has a branch in the U.S.?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
He has no bank account anywhere. They would not let him get an account or cash the checks because of the amount.
Financial Professional: bkb1956, Finance Enthusiast replied 1 year ago

Can he contact the US company and ask them to re-issue several checks in smaller amounts so that he can open and deposit the checks?

Can he open a bank account in China with a small amount and then ask the US company to wire the funds into the account?

For the last 15 months that company is still making money off that check. It has never been cashed. I thought the same thing. Issue smaller checks. Aren't they obligated by law to pay him? He has been to his x employer because a have an office in China but are talking like they are not going to do any kind of replacement check.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
His visa will be up very shortly and he has no money.
Financial Professional: bkb1956, Finance Enthusiast replied 1 year ago

They did pay him. It's not the company's fault that he cannot cash/deposit the check.

What about my second suggestion of opening a bank account in China with a small amount of money, and then ask the US company to wire the funds into that account?

What will happen if his visa expires.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
They know he can't cash that check and also know why. You are telling me that they are not obligated to do something?
What if they issued a check for a small amount of money so he could get home and another check for the balance.
Financial Professional: bkb1956, Finance Enthusiast replied 1 year ago

Of course, they can re-issue the check in smaller check amounts.

Can't he speak to someone in the US and tell them what's going on?
