Identified with the problems of consumers, as usual informing and guiding them on financial and related issues, today we have to communicate to users, who are numerous, that thanks to their claims from the victims of fraud and other instances they were served and the claims process opened for consumers who were victims of fraudulent MoneyGram transfers.
As of today it was reported that consumers who lost money to scammers and paid through MoneyGram between 2013 and 2017, and who are mostly honest workers, can now file a claim to get their money back, that fraudsters had illegally seized years ago
As is known, this claims process is the result of agreements with the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice accusing MoneyGram of violating previous agreements with the government to crack down on fraudulent money transfers.
As recalled, “MoneyGram profited illicitly by making it easy for scammers to get away with people’s hard-earned money. Today, people who are victims of this fraud can begin to recover, and we communicate to people who have lost money to a scammer through MoneyGram to file a claim and receive your check “said Daniel Kaufman, acting director of the FTC’s Office of Consumer Protection. “We are also committed to ensuring that MoneyGram delivers on its future promises to end fraud in its system.”
In February 2021, pre-filled forms were mailed to victims who had already been identified. Beginning June 1, 2021, individuals who did not receive pre-filled forms, but were victimized through MoneyGram, can file claims online or obtain a claim form on the website.http://www.moneygramremission.com/. These claims must be submitted by August 31, 2021. The claims process is being overseen by the US Postal Inspection Service.
Money transfers are a preferred payment method for scammers because money sent through money transfer systems can be quickly withdrawn at locations around the world, and once the money is paid, it is almost impossible for them to consumers get their money back. The systems also often allow scammers to remain anonymous when receiving money from their victims.
Finally, we inform you that the Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition and protect and educate consumers. You can learn more about consumer issues and report scams, fraud and bad business practices online at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.
