No, I never do. Always check. That way I have a paper trail and can prove (1) that it was written [by scanning a copy] and (2) that he has deposited it, when he does. A red flag definitely went up in my mind, when he said that, especially given how shady he's suddenly being. My thought is that if I give him cash, he'll say he never got it, and THEN he CAN hold a lien interest on her, because I have no proof that I paid it.
