(205 ILCS 405/7) (from Ch. 17, par. 4814)
    Sec. 7. Available funds; minimum amount. Each licensee shall have, at all times, a minimum of $5,000 for each currency exchange license it holds of its own cash funds available for the uses and purposes of its currency exchange business and said minimum sum shall be exclusive of and in addition to funds received for exchange or transfer; and in addition thereto each such licensee shall at all times have on hand an amount of liquid funds sufficient to pay on demand all outstanding money orders issued by it. Whenever a licensee holds more than one community currency exchange license, the aggregate of the minimum liquid funds required under this Section 7 for all of such licensee's licensed locations may be held by the licensee in a single account in the licensee's name, provided that the total liquid funds equals a minimum of $5,000 multiplied by the number of licenses held by that licensee.
    In the event a receiver is appointed in accordance with Section 15.1 of this Act, and the Secretary determines that the business of the currency exchange should be liquidated, and if it shall appear that the said minimum sum was not on hand or available at the time of the appointment of the receiver, then the receiver shall have the right to recover in any court of competent jurisdiction from the owner or owners of such currency exchange, or from the stockholders and directors thereof if such currency exchange was operated by a corporation, or from the members if the currency exchange was operated as a limited liability company, said sum or that part thereof which was not on hand or available at the time of the appointment of such receiver. Nothing contained in this Section shall limit or impair the liability of any bonding or insurance company on any bond or insurance policy relating to such community currency exchange issued pursuant to the requirements of this Act, nor shall anything contained herein limit or impair such other rights or remedies as the receiver may otherwise have.
