Some people can become confused with the differences between a cashier’s check and a certified check. A cashier’s check is the type of check that has been signed by the bank. When you say a certified check, this is a type of check that will be signed by the person who would like to purchase or the consumer.
The cashier’s check will usually be from the bank’s account, while the certified checks will come from the consumer's check. The check should always be checked to see if the signature that is placed on it is genuine. Another thing that should be verified is if the account has enough funds to actually provide the money that the check requires.
