Foreign Accounts: Apex’s policy requires that any check or ACH deposits into international accounts must remain in the account 30 days before any withdrawal may take place. Additionally, Apex will not accept cashiers checks for international accounts. Any items drawn in foreign currencies or against a foreign bank will be sent for collection. The customer will not be credited for deposit until the bank has collected the funds from the foreign institution and covers Apex for the item converted into USD funds.

Penalties for Returned Check Deposits - In the event that a check is returned unpaid from the paying bank, a $25 fee will be charged and the account will be asked to send funds in an alternate method (wire, cashier's check, or certified funds). The following penalties will be enforced for any check deposited into a customer account that is returned unpaid by the paying bank regardless of the reason for the return:

1st returned deposit for any reason results in a warning. However we will require alternate method of deposit.

2nd returned deposit for any reason results in a 90 day restriction of the account.

3rd returned deposit for any reason results in account closure for 90 days (liquidating transactions only)
