Circle K's unlicensed check-cashing costly

Convenience store chain Circle K has agreed to pay a $1 million fine following allegations that it provided check-cashing services without a Florida license between Jan. 1, 2009, and Feb. 14, 2014, state regulators said Thursday.

The retail chain, which is owned by Quebec-based Alimentation Couche-Tard, has now applied for and received a check-cashing license for transactions, according to the Florida Office of Financial Regulation.
