Traveler's checks. I remember that we used to get traveler's checks before going on vacation or traveling somewhere. I haven't thought about them in years until I read about a clerk at a store refused to sell them to a person of color who was buying them to use for rent payment. So they've gone from a "safer way to use money" to a poor tax for people who can't use a checking account for whatever reason.
