I thought it was interesting how the article said that a customer does not require a bank account or credit check in order to get a loan from a pawn shop. My brother wants to propose to his girlfriend next month but he does not have enough money for a ring, so he has been thinking about pawning some of his belongings so that he can afford one. It seems like it's an easy way for him to be able to pay for something that's important now and repay the loan later.
Thanks for explaining that pawnbrokers can give you a loan without rigorous identification checks. My cousin's fiance needs to get a loan so he can hire an immigration lawyer, but he's not currently legal. I'll suggest that he find a pawn shop so he can get a loan without a rigorous identity check.
