the fee would be because of a foreign check, not b/c of the bank where you take it. Yes, there will be a slight difference in fee amount, but any bank that has to send a check through foreign collections is going to charge you a significant amount. My credit union will not even accept foreign checks (luckily, I have never received one that is 100% foreign).
