Checkmate: Check Cashing Exposé

I’m a usually a free market kind of guy, mostly because the free market, or at least our version of it, has been good to me and my family. That being said, I understand why people think check cashing stores are ripoffs and why they should be regulated more. I think they serve a purpose, giving those without bank accounts access to their funds, but their fees are extraordinary and deserve inspection.

So, who better to inspect them than the Internets Celebrities [3]? This nine minute clip is worth every minute both in informational and entertainment value.

This video courtesy of Consumerist [4], Editor Ben Popken makes a cameo too.
