I WITNESSED THIS VERY THING, TRYING TO DEAL WITH CHECK CITY. I WAS AT THE ONE ON EASTERN & FLAMINGO IN NV AND WAS TOLD I NEEDED A CHECKING ACCOUNT TO GET A PAYDAY LOAN, THAT MY SSI WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I WAS THEN TOLD BY AN EMPLOYEE TO GO TO THEIR LOCATION 40 MINUTES AWAY FOR A SIGNATURE LOAN INSTEAD. I COULDN'T FIND IT AT FIRST--THEY DIDN'T TURN ON THE SIGNS. I WAS THEN TOLD MY CREDIT WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR A LOAN THERE. I SAW THIS BLACK WOMAN GETTING HASSLED TRYING TO CASH A 50 DOLLAR CHECK, FOR THE SAME REASONS MENTIONED IN THE OTHER REVIEW. PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME HERE---GO TO DOLLAR LOAN CENTER OR MONEY TREE.

Check City is located near my house. I often go there to get money orders. The three times I tried to cash my Pell Grant and a money order I was greeted with suspicion. The first time I tried to cash my Pell Grant went fine, the second time, the check from the same university, was greeted with suspicion. I was asked" why is it so much?" I couldn't even answer the question because it was so dumb. The amount totaled maybe $1,100 is that too much for for tuition? That is a fraction of the cost for tuition. The next time I went to Check City I wanted a refund on one of three money orders I just got from them a few hours before. I had to fill out a whole application just to get a refund! The last time I was moving, I wanted a refund of a $50 money order, again I was greeted with suspicion. The lady looked at the computer screen and stated with fear " oh it says you need a supervisor, oh supervisor's name". She got on the phone, bending down , hiding, but the mirrors showed her reflection. I asked if there was a problem she stated she had never seen a money order starting with the number one. I got mad and took my money order back to 7-11 where I originally purchased it. I thought since I was in the area I would go to Check City but I am tired of being viewed with suspicion. My rent was stolen out of a drop box, three money orders were stolen . It took six months and $200 to track down $1,200 in stolen money orders which had since been cashed. I'm sure the thieves looked nothing like me. How old do I have to be to stop being viewed with suspicion, Check City had no problem cashing my paychecks but I they will not cash any money order I bring. I am tired of racist companies and their practices. Every time I return after not being able to cash a money and having the proof that I got them cashed elsewhere, I am told " I don't know why they wouldn't cash that" with a huge grin.

Thanks Check City for the help. I needed a loan for my kids birthday. They helped me get the cash I needed the power wheels toy car my kid has always wanted. Their employees were very friendly and understanding. Thanks Again.

I needed some money till I got paid next week. This was a first time for me getting a short loan. Check City made it fast & easy to get the CASH I needed that day. Give them a call if you need a few bucks to pay your bills till your next payday rolls around. 5 STARS
