Protecting customers is a priority

At MoneyGram, few things make us angrier than when people use money transfer services for illegal activities to deliberately defraud and harm consumers. These criminals lie to convince you to wire money to them, knowing you won't be able to get your money back. The best way to stop them is to learn how they might try to trick you. MoneyGram is committed to educating you so you don't become a victim of fraud.

It's our goal to educate you on ways you can safeguard your money and personal information and avoid becoming a victim of consumer fraud. Visit our list of common consumer scams to know what to look for. Keep in mind other scams exist, so it's always safest to use common sense when sending money. The most important tip we can give is, “Do not send money to someone you don’t know”.

Visit the sections of our consumer fraud prevention center for resources, FAQs and other information to protect yourself from fraudsters.
