‘War On Cash’ Continues

April 24, 2019 GMT

Editor: Your April 13 article “Backlash on Cashless” states, “There is no federal law that requires stores to accept cash.” I disagree. In my Webster’s New World Dictionary, the term legal tender is defined as “money which the law requires a creditor to accept in payment of a debt.” The term “legal tender” appears on all our printed currency. Therefore, anyone refusing cash as payment for a product or service would be breaking the law. Correct? That’s how I see it. This is not rocket science. And the “war on cash” continues. Good thing we live in America where freedom of choice is supposed to reign supreme. Think about it. Jonathan Kew KINGSTON
