Check Cashing Stores Could Have Advantages over Banks

Lisa Servon worked at a check cashing store to identify its benefits and whether or not the financial system should direct consumers to banking services which have previously been cited as less expensive and more efficient; in her experience at RiteCheck Cashing, Servon found three factors that influenced the use of check cashers by the underbanked; costs were lower in comparison to the fees and charges from using a bank; pricing transparency was more clearly provided for check cashing services; many customers also reported better service from check cashing tellers than bank representatives; Servon has published a book titled “The Unbanking of America: How the New Middle Class Survives” which provides full details on the benefits of using check cashing services.  Source
