This is an excerpt from one of the highest-rated comments on the story, 
from a reader:

----
Why is it legal, to rob the poor?

Why do banks have a monopoly on money transfers.

Silicon Valley should be able to develop an easy app to accessible at 
somewhere other than a bank, possibly at the post office, the library, 
the pharmacy, or Walmart, to allow funds to be dropped off somewhere in 
the US and picked up somewhere in Mexico or other countries.
