  • 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.

    MoneyGram complaint I have been working with this company to receive a refund or reissue a check since July 6 2020 I was told that it would take two weeks for the replacement check to reach me and my company. After the two weeks. I did not receive the replacement check I followed the steps for replacement check exactly how I was told to do so they had me do this step three different times and still no replacement check I gave them the correct address 3 different times if not more and still no replacement the customer service that I receive is difficult to understand Their speech in their accents. I spoke to several customer reps and all they can do is offer standard by the book policy's in conflicting information with each other supervisor I spoke to was unhelpful or willing to resolve my issues. I wouldn't recommend MoneyGram for any future endeavors their desire to help you is insincere and rude no matter if you were speaking to supervisors or customer service reps or just in general emails Sincerely disappointed customer

    My experience with moneygram was horrible. You have to provided lots of information like your passport etc and even so they BLOCK your transaction and you have to call them to provide tons of information. Customer reps speaks bad English and Hindi and you have to spell eveything. Very high fees to me. Very negative experience as a custome an superb ripp-off.

    They have closed my account for no apparent reason. I called them couple times and the operator never gave me a clear reason.

    moneygram is a rip off. Tried to send money to someone on May 19, 2020. They canceled my transaction and I still have yet to get my money back. They keep telling me they are having technical difficulties and to call back after 24-72 hours its now July.

    I tried to send money today, they deleted my account, blocked my ability to ever use them again, listed me as fraudulent, and blocked me form using the Walmart service also. There is no reason, i have used them many times for over 10 years even while trucking but not all the scudded I am blocked for life.

    Never use Moneygram! I cancelled a transaction the same day that I sent it as my son wasn't going to be able to pick it up that day. The cancellation was successful but the credit was never received. It has been 28 business days and I am still out $140.99. The representative HUNG UP on me stating the credit was processed and there is nothing he can do. I immediately called my bank and they are starting an investigation. I then went to the Better Business Bureau and Moneygram as 698 complaints in the last 3 years. Why are they even in business? I have submitted my case to a lawyer that specialized in class action lawsuits. I hope he will be able to find a case. I would feel vindicated. Since, my son has signed up with Paypal. It is a MUCH safer way to transfer money. Venmo is also good. Don't trust this horrible company.

    Worst remittance customer service I have ever come across? It costed more to call international number, stay call for 30 minutes, costs more than sending the money itself. I have sent three emails for nearly 3 weeks - no response. All I have is a case number. They have not been answered. They will not call back either! All I can view online is that the transaction is withheld. The total amount is less than $50 I will not recommend, find alternative!

    Accepted transfer then canceled my account saying it was fraud and banned me from using service. Called to find out why and got rude and unclear response for call center.
