  • 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.

    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!

    The most terrible customer service, Indians which couldn't speak a word in English (I'm an emigrant too, learn the f...ing language). Furthermore, the most terrible management and the most terrible service. They canceled my transaction because they didn't feel safe to complete it, learn the f...ing English and maybe you will understand better the answers people give you. When I went to get my money back, they said money orders only and .

    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.

    The most f...ked up company there is. The most terrible customer service, Indians which couldn't speak a word in English (I'm an emigrant too, learn the f...ing language). Furthermore, the most terrible management and the most terrible service. They canceled my transaction because they didn't feel safe to complete it, learn the f...ing English and maybe you will understand better the answers people give you. When I went to get my money back, they said money orders only and I had to go to a different location, because the one I worked with reached its refund limits. I ended up doing a normal bank transfer, which was $ 55.00 cheaper than moneygram, and my family received about $100.00 pounds more for the same money I sent. Extremely terrible, stay away from this sh..it !

    I pay tuition for 10 students in Ghana. I have sent money their regularly for years through MoneyGram. First, MoneyGram cut me off from their online services because of "security risks" and I will, according to them, never be able to use it again. I had used it 1X using a credit card. This was caused by me wanting to make my payments directly from my bank instead of a credit card. I have an over 800 credit score and have never had issues with my credit or sending money to Ghana. Now, on Sunday May 6, 2018, when sending money the manner I've done 20+ times at CVS, I was initially denied to sending money for "security risks." The service person asked me ridiculous questions that I've never been asked before such as why was I sending money, have I met the person I'm sending the money to, how many times had I met the person I was sending the money to, when was the last time I'd seen this person. I had never been asked these before. I asked for a supervisor. I was told they'd have the same answer. I waited 5 minutes before hanging up. I then called back, was not asked any of those questions and had my money transfer approved. Getting any kind of reasonable answer to my difficulties has been impossible.

    "Sorry but money gram is sucks" the Moroccan money gram guy working in their agency said to the receiver. and I really agree. when I went to the guy working in post Canada, he did not provide even the minimum help, what he says call them I can not do anything for you. Plus when i called i couldn't understand their question and their costumer services is really in button. but thank you you refund my money back.
