I'm with you. In fact, I don't know anyone for whom I would endorse a check for nearly $3K. If a close friend needed a little cash to tide him over until his check cleared I would loan him fifty or a hundred bucks and file it away as a gift.
As friend Orvil once said: "Never, ever, go on the hook for more than you can afford to take out of your pocket and give away."
