My phone has NFC for non UK sets, yet the UK ones had it disabled!

Quite true, but those notes need to be carried between the bank and home.

(I kept my thoughts on the probable reliability of people who were prepared to neither accept a cheque nor pass over bank details to myself.)

Slightly off topic but I completely agree. I've been stood at open plan "help" desk before when the woman would say "oh I notice you have £xxx in your current account, can we talk to you about other services", or "so would you like 50s for that £1000 then sir?".

I've never used Cheques, on the rare chance that I do need to use one then I just have the bank write one up for me, cost 10 pounds but its a bankers draft.
If you are worried about collecting large amounts just phone inadvance and have them make up a sealed bundle, one of my friends was paid 20,000 pounds in cash recently and it was in bundles of 5000 and they were sealed and signed by the bank, so it saves having to count it out.

I used a cheque last millennium, and I use cash almost once a month. Square is for USA, so reads the mag stripe, so we won't be getting that soon. Still waiting for banks to actually be secure, how come reading my email is more secure than my bank account?, which apparently half the world can empty with just my account number

My main bank account is online, and no cash machine will take deposits to it, so the odd occasion when I receive a cheque I have to keep a separate account and then transfer it over.
