    That's part of the terrorism and drug act. there's too many people on the street out there that deposits $100 into somebody's account for a bag of cocaine or heroin. So that they can avoid having a cash transaction on the street. That can be witnessed by the police.

    Because you are not a customer of the bank.

    something to do with (the fear of) money laundering, or funding terrorists. Chase has the same policy.

    I've never had a problem depositing a check into someone else's account. When it's a check, they know where the money came from. Cash is untraceable

    It might be fraud prevention.

    The policy is only the owner of an account can deposit into that account.

    The reason is related to preventing fraud.
