Can I put a stop payment order on a cashier's check?

Generally, a customer cannot order a stop payment on a cashier's check, and the bank must honor a cashier's check when it is presented for payment. This is because a cashier's check is drawn directly on the bank that issues the check, not on your account.

Contact the bank immediately if the cashier's check is lost, stolen, or destroyed, or if you believe a check is fraudulent.
