Wow the middle east statistic is really low...I'd imagine if they took Israel out of the mix it would be even lower.

Two savings accounts, a credit account and a debit account. That's modest for your average adult... I'm 24.

Hmm

Around here when you cash a check without an account, they charge you $10-$15..

Any employer who pays their employees in cash is doing some shady ****.

Had one at 16 with my folks and then I broke off and had my own later. Life without an account would be just a tad more sucky.
