8 Top Moments from Rafi & Dallas's Checkmate

TwitThis




1. Ben of Consumerist saying, "I can't wrap my head
around the idea
of paying someone for my own money".
Ben, Ben, Ben, welcome to the hood.

2. "One stop shopping, income tax time is here". GRIMEY.

3. Who wants to walk out of a check cashing spot with their money?

4. I want to keep this whole American economy rolling.

5. Another reason the poor stay winning. Dallas is foul for that.

6. Bankers workers love to drink Starbucks.

7. "Banks... are beholden to their shareholders not to their
customers...often at the expense of the low income customers" Real Talk.

8. Debt is the new money. I'm through. I'm out. Dead.

I love the teaching through sarcasm. It's way less heavy handed
than the sh*t I write.


I would have like to have seen an interview with someone
who has the numbers on the collective impact of check cashing
operations on the hood. Another suggestion would be a visual
comparing how much money is spent over a year, cashing a monthly
$ 1200 check at a bank versus a check cashing spot.

What's funny here is in Ohio that they just made the Attorny General resign or face impeachment over sexual harrasment(not justifying it) @ the same time he was spearheading a initiative to put limits on how the check cashing places operate.

It went through for the most part as well & places are just up & leaving the state. Like been here 75+ years & leaving.

And don't even THINK about the cash advances on those checks. Like owin' your soul to the company sto'. I knew a little old lady one time who very nearly went to jail behind borrowing money from places like this. By the time I met her, she was giving them ALL her money. And then borrowing more. Week after week. It was obscene.
