What you don't understand is that this is a "for profit" business. Your check probably was OK, but many are not. The loss factors have to be figured into the fees. Remember, they are NOT a bank, and their only income against their expenses is their fees. They are not making money from interest on such things as mortages, car loans, etc.

When a person's financial status has sunk to the point where banks, credit unions and other financial institutions will not deal with them, they are considered VERY high risk, thus they must pay more for the "trust" factor.
