Ran into a situation for the first time and was looking for some confirmation.
Customer purchases an Official Check with $15,000, and makes the check payable to XYZ Company (non-customer of the Bank). On the CTR, would it be listed as Customer as 2b, and then I would not list anyone as the beneficiary, as the beneficiary would be the payee on the Official Check, which is not a customer of the Bank and therefore I do not have anything besides their name?
Or am I not able to assume that even though the check is made payable to XYZ that it will actually benefit them because the check itself is in my customer's hand, and would instead list my customer as 2a?
Life is like a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
