I'm not sure if it's already been suggested but I've just had first hand experience at a hole in the system. Cashiers cheques are there to protect you from being mugged when people can see you receive a large amount of money. one area of this that is not protected is the housing market. After selling my PI I had about 1.3bil on me and youngblaze, the guy who bought my house used an accomplice to continually mug me and revive me and altogether stole about 200 mil.

bit annoying but I thinks it's an obvious hole in the system that could easily be remedied by putting the money into a cashiers cheque.

Cashier's checks are there to protect money gained from auction sales, bookie payouts and stock market sales due to the fact that you don't have much control over when the money is paid to you for those types of transaction.

With property sales you have the option of removing your property from the market when you're offline, so you still have the ability to protect yourself from muggers to a reasonable degree (also turning revives off kinda helps limit the damage too).

Yeah I had 1.5 billion taken from me, that is an embarrassing oversight for the developers I am sure. Note that there is more safety for selling stocks than properties since for stocks it doesn't advertise "when you buy these stocks, player X will have a lot of money in his pockets" and yet you can just take down the stocks when you are offline. With a property, while you can also take the sale down it certainly seems unreasonable to sit around, possibly for days, waiting for the property to sell and with no guarantee that their reflexes will not be better than yours (since they get to decide at what second the sale occurs).

In short, it is stupid that something as safe and controlled as a stock market sale (which is safer than a property sale even without the cashier check) gets the special protection of a cashier check while the property sale does not. That and auction sales and bookie payouts are also inherently safer, since while you don't have control over when they end you do have knowledge of when they end -- hence safer than a property sale even if neither had the benefit of cashier's checks.
