    In American english, you use check.
    In British english, you use cheque.

    Since I've took British English, I'll stick to cheque. I feel kinda weird when I type check...

    UK English

    Credit Check - Correct

    Credit Cheque - Wrong

    The mail man handed me a cheque - Correct

    However you can use both but cheque is the correct way, am a bit tired but I think i got this right.

    Check: to clarify something!
    Cheque: a form of currency!

    At least that's what they taught me when I went to school! :)

    It requires slightly more phlegm to pronounce cheque, hence the increase in sexiness.

    Clearly the correct spelling is is cheque. The fact that our ex-colonial brothers across the water have bastardised the spelling carries no weight with me matey, if you're going to speak English then you should speak it and indeed spell it correctly.

    Now, repeat after me, "The rain in Spain......."
