/Biz/, how do I cash this without going to jail?
That sounds like a horrible idea. It's not worth the risk.
Did you seriously just open someone else's mail? The fuck is wrong with you??? Its a crime to do that. Just write no such adressee on the envelope, pop that shit back into the mailbox and make the Post Office deal with it.

who fucking cares about the check. try to cash the check, if they cash it, bolt it, if you sense they know something's up, bolt it. literally NOTHING will happen unless you're stupid. if you don't wanna do that, you can always fuck around with it, stick it in someone else's mail or something
You will endorse/sign the back of the check
It will be cashed with your own account used as recourse in case the check isn't honored
It wont be
Bank will take your own money to pay for the check
Probably also report you
Problem is the check fraud or cashing, it's that it came through the mail

The question you have to ask is if you're going to risk a felony for the potential benefit of $243
Uhh, they just have to ask the people that wrote the check. They'll say it was sent to 123 Faggot St, Faggotville, Ohio. Which, I'm pretty sure also happens to be OP's address.
Hnnnnnnng negotiable instruments.

My friend was in between banks cause hes a degenerate.
He asked me if I could cash a check for him during non-bank hours. I took it to the ATM, had him sign the check and right 'for deposit' on it. I think I also signed it, I cant remember.
I deposit it into my personal account and give him the cash.
No one ever questioned anything.
