  • EDITORIAL REVIEW

    MoneyGram started as a publicly traded company in 2004. It has been in the field of remittance for the last 25 years as its parent company, Payment Systems Inc, was already in money transfer business from 1988.

    MoneyGram’s main attraction is its 10-minute money transfer available in a convenient and easy manner.  Furthermore, no credit/debit cards or bank accounts are essential to fulfill this transaction. The money can be transferred from a MoneyGram agent location through cash transaction. The 10-minute money transfer can also be carried out via debit/credit cards. Slower 3-day transaction process is also available at a lower fee where the money can be sent via your bank account. Out of the three modes of sending money the lowest fee charged is via bank and highest via an agent.  The maximum amount you can send online in one transaction is $1499.99, which is slightly low compared to other services. Otherwise the transaction limit is $10,000.

    There is only one simple straightforward receiving option for the recipients in India via MoneyGram – they have to pick up the funds from an agent location. Even though there is only one option, MoneyGram makes the service easy and convenient for the receivers. The receiver is not charged any fee, and needs to carry an official ID and reference number provided by the sender. There are thousands of MoneyGram agent locations spread all over India.

    In light of the recent events of money-laundering charges, MoneyGram has strengthened its anti-money laundering efforts. It has incorporated strong consumer fraud protection measures and has warnings and advice against phishing posted on its website.

    Finally, sending money via MoneyGram does not require elaborate planning. Usually with lack of planning come high transfer fee and other uncertainties. But that is not the case if the money transfer is done through MoneyGram because of its convenient sending options and seemingly ubiquitous presence for receiving money in India.

    Hi, Frank Spencer here again, Now, I wonder if the fact my comments regarding my latest two experiences with MoneyGram were pretty detailed and appropriately negative. Then the fact that the content did not post properly and right-hand side wording is all cut off making it almost impossible to read properly?..You even start wondering if MoneyGram itself had something to do with it. Plus you wonder why/how some other obviously negative reviews about MoneyGram show up with Five Stars on this review site....................Interestingly enough and the actual main point of my remarks about the bad experiences with MoneyGram was that things just did not add up and contradictory information and statements by them. They themselves may be manipulating these negative reviews but Five Stars showing. My comments in my long review were to that exact same end.........Questioning if MoneyGram had been manipulating me and my money for their benefit....That MoneyGram is one question mark after another. Dangerous behavior when it comes to something as important for our life as our hard earned money. You get really nervous of ever turning it over to MoneyGram from here on out. They seem to do a lot of little things that could be passed off as minor or some minor discrepancies.. But yet lots of them and they all tend to somehow point in their favor. It is the Fact Pattern that you want to watch out for. As I tried to explain, I think they have become a Slippery Lot recently because they had been pretty good for me up until lately plus I never had detected so many minor but multiple contradictions and unanswered questions but always in their financial favor. Lots of seemingly "Innocent Minor Mistakes"

    Now, I am really annoyed. All my time and effort trying to write my other actual statements regarding MoneyGram. When I look at it now I see that it is all cut off on the right-hand margin and you cannot read it well enough to understand it because many words were cut off when posted.

    First, some who made obviously negative reviews here show Five Stars............I suggest either the reviewer made an entry and did not carefully look at the Rate It Star check off entries or MG changed the reviews to Five Stars.............Anybody who already posted negative reviews doublecheck the Star Rating entries. Five Stars but a negative experience upgrades the overall Star Average.....That makes the overall rating of MG look better than intended........................ Apart from my experiences detailed below.......MoneyGram has been in legal trouble before..........Plus you can read a lot of other complaints on other Websites such as Better Business Bureau Mos tother businesses are never completely perfect nor are complaining customers always correctal of the time either.However, with MoneyGram? LOTS OF RED FLAGS...Where there is smoke there is Fire. Usually when you play with fire you will eventually get burned.I twas okay for awhile but these last twoi ncidences have made me runaway as fast as possible.Even if not Burned dollar and cents-wise directly. You can be without use of your own money for anything else while tied up with them.You can get burned time-wise and unpleasant experience-wise............those are very valuable commodities in life too. I have other options and doing those going forward after these last two instances with MG. With me, I was a pretty satisfied customer for about one and a half years. Maybe $ 20,000. in total.........However,duringOctober,2020 we started one and MG took $3,000.and fees just like usual and provided tracking number but when attempting to pick up at Banrural Bank as usual (the last previous transfe was in August. Ikeepallmytransactionrecereceiptsandrecords) with al proper ID the bank said their system showed transaction cancelled but MG system still said valid and ready for pickup.I went to Banco Azteca and they said the same thing...None of my own money out to me but in MG and other bank possession.MG was nothing but run around on phone without one comment that did not contradict another comment or informationfrombankwhereIattempted to pick up at and conflicting info on website/internet tracking reports/ MG bought themselves at least 8 days worth of assets for their use of my money until Icouldgetitbackasrefund Twice and send information saying Available for Pickup but when attempting to Pickup with absolutely perfect ID and with out a doubt we are not criminals,not large sums of money and my own very hard earned money For My Needs (The entire point of this service. Custome rNeedsT heir Money),once again BanRura lBank (I go there all the time for other pickups and I know the staff. In these two instances they probably spen six hours with me trying to get to the bottom of it. Ultimately they said the only way to resolve was to call MG.)....These are not distinct separate organizations as far as customer is concerned nor should their data not matchup . MG System still said it was ready for PU and would never answer why they would not give me MY money.Passport IDsaddresses/Gov.IDcards perfect and they absolutely knew who s ender was because we were regular customers.If they asked us any security questions we could have provided exact answers....................Their Stories Just did not Add Uponmultiple,multiplepointsandoccassions..Twice in a Row and high quality sender/recipients. All they do on phone was run around to both my freind the sender when he called multiple times and same for my calls..........................................I happen to be a Licensed Certified Public Accountant n Washington,DC and can prove it.I have been a CPA since1982 and other financial credentialsand experience....................Huge errors when Moneygram quickly took in thousands of dollars but then I could not get my money event hough they said available.I was giving them Interest Free Loans.MG and all the distribution institutions they partner with are ONE organization as far as customer is concerned.They both share in the profits of your transactions................After really legitimate suspicion what was going on in all of this seriouslyconflicting information with in what actually is ONE connected banking relationship........................... I several times called MG and told them that by this point I suspect they are manipulating and asked them questions in order top in them down but still allow them the opportunity to explain themselves...............But they constantly tried to pull the usual tactics of.........Instead of Answering my clear questions to them that I told them I wanted a direct answer?...........they would reply with questions of their own on a different subject trying to deflect............An obvious clear straight forward statement to them and he would say he did not understand the question or what I was asking......The one woman on phone just began repeating her line faster and faster and louder over and over again trying to talk over me or cloud my words........................The last call ended with the man doing the silent treatment (sort of Ironic .When you want them to listen they will Not Stop talking) to my questions and then I asked him what was he hiding.I told him that thieves hide in the dark........I tried to pin them in the right spots with facts and give them every opportunity to reply to questions I had every right to ask.................but all they did was try and dance around,deflect,pretend not understanding pretty clear comments and questions......................Then the last guy hungup......................The results of what they did bought them more time of interest free loans from me without any justification or any explanation on their part after giving them every single opportunity...................They were basically thieves on these two atleast eastintermsofInterestFreeLoansonfaultynon-matchingstories...............Theyhappily took money.............But ultimately kept it as Interest Free Loans.Huge conlicting stories Red Flags when company takes in money and says customer has access............... ......................They are in the money business.They want money for their use.That is fine when they do their part of the deal....Plus when you pay a Transaction Fee you are buying what entitles you to a QualityTransaction.................They had more money to work with for their own financial betterment but huge discrepancies in the functioning..................................Either they were incredibly incompetent or intentional manipulators..............Actually Both.........................Never hand over a penny to MG again...Two instances was enough to detect patterns .................They were basically ConArtists behind appearance of FinancialManagers....................And incredibly disrespectful treatment of human beings.They want to act Holier Than Though. Butdonotevenhavetheirownacttogether.................That is another behavior you will see in dishonest people.Honest people usually have stories that matchup and easy to answer a customer question.I cannot prove this.....but I would not be surprised if they use Protecting Your Security as a bit of their deception excuse to hide behind.Maybe not all of the ****time...............but now I think they have become A Slippery Lot.***Plus it made no difference whether I called for information or my friend the sender called MG with questions about the transactions and fact that....I never got my money where I needed it.MYLife.............I could have been doing a million better things with my time.****We have opted to using WesternUnion to send me my moneyand so far working fine.Money successfully in hand.Ireallyneededit...........butMGmademessandwasteoflife............Buttheymadefinancialprofitviacustodyofmymoneywithnothingbutcontradictory unanswered behavior that would only lead to the conclusion that they wanted to hold to the money for thei rown use.Inretrospectonthesetwotransactiontheyofferedarereallygoodconversionrateturnaroundtimeandlowfee...Almost too good to be true. Theyseemedtosomuchwantmoneyinthedoorbutthenneverouttheotherendaspromisedandsaiditwas.

Most importantly? You had you own financial incentives and gains. Who came out ahead on every single level in all of this? MoneyGram!! Who would never fix or resolve problems/conflicts somehow under their doing and control whether asked by the sender or anyone else involved including banks on the other end? MoneyGram!!

    Transfer was made on the 5th of August 2020, Funds was supposed to be received by my supplier on the 12 August. Today is 24th and no funds was received. The supplier is someone who I have relationship with for decades, I know him very well. The amount is not to high (1400$) but still it is money. The problem is that the company have a ridiculous policy in the case funds are not received. They asked me to ask the supplier (receiver) to provide his bank statement which is ridiculous.MoneyGram HEADQUARTERS +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram HEADQUARTERS PHONE NUMBER +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram PHONE NUMBER +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram CORPORATE PHONE NUMBER +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram CORPORATE NUMBER +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram ADDRESS +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram CUSTOMER SERVICE +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram CONTACTS +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram CORPORATE +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram CORPORATE ADDRESS +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram HQ +1 833 7OO O571 MoneyGram COMPLAINTS +1 833 7OO O571 No company will accept that.

    Just like other reviews...they gathered my personal information then closed my account! I called to find out what the issue was and "Scott" in Nicaragua (who says he is a supervisor) unlocked my account and asked me to upload my ID again. I did. Same thing! I asked him to help me understand what the issue was so I could do something and he REFUSED to help me. I asked to speak to a supervisor and that's when he told me he was a supervisor. I asked to speak to him manager and he said "No. They don't take calls!" Everyone with this experience should file a complaint with the FTC, BBB, and consumer protection agencies available and let's get them OUT of the market!

    Beware! They will ban or cancel your account for no reason stating some non-nonsensical reasons. Try others, they are more humble, professional and reasonable.
