Foreign National Purchasing At Trustee Sale Auction

OK, So I’m from Canada, and am looking at maybe heading to the U.S. to a foreclosure auction. Do I travel with thousands of dollars, and risk being robbed? How would you go about it?

Leave your cash at home. You’ll want to use a cashiers check drawn on a US bank. Probably easiest to open an account here and transfer funds in. Then visit the local branch for a cashiers check the morning of the auction.
