Adam Rust

Adam writes BankTalk, a blog about the alternative financial products that serve the unbanked population in America. Unbanked and underbanked are terms that describe adults that lack either a savings or a checking account, or that use alternative financial services such as prepaid debit cards, check cashers, pawn shops, rent-to-own shops, buy-here-pay-here car dealers, and tax refund loans. Adam is also one of the nation’s leading expert on prepaid debit cards, and top researcher of high-cost consumer finance.
