Most states require Money Transmitters Bonds from check cashers, payday loan companies and currency exchange (msb’s). These check cashing bonds guarantee the licensee will operate their business in compliance with state and/or federal laws. Many surety companies charge higher rates for these bonds because they perceive they are exposed to greater risk. The process of getting bonded can be complicated and time consuming. The result is that many MSB’s find the process of obtaining either a single bond or a large aggregate surety program frustrating.
