TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The state is fining Circle K Stores $1 million for operating a check-cashing service without a license.
The Florida Office of Financial Regulation announced a settlement with the gas station and convenience store chain on Thursday.
Circle K agreed to pay the fine and will now be granted a license to operate check-cashing services at their Florida stores.
The chain had been operating the service without a license since 2009.
