Please READ and SHARE!!! Few days before Christmas I sent money to a sister go get gift for my one year old nephew. Moneygram refused to hand them the money. I found this out after Christmas. I called moneygram and was questioned by a 24 year old girl in the Philippines who acted like a robot and calmly went to a list of questions given to her by this company. I am a registered nurse and had used moneygram for years. I used to have a Money Gram card where they used to scan and pull all my info. After this unpleasant questioning I thought I could get my money back they say it will still be under review. I hanged up and called again. I asked for service in French this time since I am bilingual (French-English) and was transferred to Morocco. The girl in Morocco said to me I am going to clear this and tell your family to go get the money using the same reference number no question asked. Now I just sent the same sister some money again this month and went through the same. She cannot pick it up. Well the girl at the Canada Post office where I had done the transaction was on the phone with Moneygram and I was there waiting for one full hour. she helped other customers as she was transferred from one department to another. Just terrible service. At some point, they even told the girl at the post office that they did not have that reference number. The girl told them that the transaction was from their store and she had the receipt in her hand. I think people should take the time to comment on their experience with this company on this forum so others could learn that Moneygram is not the same company we came to rely on. As for me, I am going back to dealing with Western Union and try online banking now that it is easily available. Good luck to us all.

I attempted to send some funds to my son and got the third degree from a lady that speaks English but has such a thick accent and I had a lot of difficulty understanding her especially because she spoke so quickly. Finally I had had enough and simply cancel the transaction and I'll use another service most likely Western Union. For your own well-being mental well-being do not use this company.

They took the money in seconds and after 30 hours no record for any transaction on their system why?? Because they had to interview my son for 15 minutes asking him how you know your father ?what parks near your home? When was last time you saw your dad? What is ur date of birth (they have a copy of my driving licence)?? All that for 1000 pound sent to my dad and they let millions go without a question

Needed to transfer £1000 to a familly member in Ukraine. Registered with MoneyGram, filled out all the required information for the transfer, confirmed my identity and submitted the transfer. Got a message back after 10 minutes or so that more information was required. Called them, told them my relation to the person who was receiving the money, when I last saw them, what the money was for, whether I would be making any further transfers to this person or not all along with confirming my identity over the phone. They told me to resubmit the transfer. Resubmitted the transfer, showed as processing, then showed as complete and sent me the confirmation number to give to my relative who was collecting the money. 5 minutes later I got another email saying the transaction was cancelled. Phoned them again, go through identifying myself again only to be told that "Secuirty" blocked the transaction and they can't tell me why. Great......the best part is that you will get your money refunded in about 3 - 10 days !!!! They can take the money immediately, accept the transaction, then cancel transaction and will return the money in 3 - 10 days - that's a nice little earner for the company when they have done nothing apart from wasted my time and taken my money. Registered with Transferwise, money sent in 24 hours and the fees were 30% of what MoneyGram was charging. Do not bother with MoneyGram......I won't be.

I was working for them. Do not use them. Even when I was trying to help because it was easy to see that the person is not a scammer, fraudster and etc, they have to pass through all the annoying steps. It was making me feel as a robot, because i was repeating the same things over and over again. It was exhausting for the customers as well. It is all to collect your data, time and..... money. Their support is with zero competence, mostly foreigners and students who learnt their phrases in the different languages, in order for them to repeat the rules over and over again.

Customer service is terrible. They hang up on you if you can't provide enough information. I called in 4 times and was hung up on each time, one girl didn't even take my information she hung up when I asked to speak to a supervisor right away. There was fraud on my acct from one of their agent locations and no one would assist me unless I had a reference number!!! It was fraud!! How am I supposed to have that information. No empathy or urgency to resolve the matter, more than $3,000 CAD was taken from my acct in one day. I had to get the police involved and now still waiting to get my money back. I only went in once because it was very close to my house, not knowing the agent has a skimming machine set up on their debit device so they copied my PIN and withdrew money days after I left. I will NEVER use them again, I will stick with Western Union, they're far more reliable than moneygram. Stay away!

I had bought a total of $1945 worth of money orders for my lawyer. Two of the money orders were ripped, I went in to have them re-issued, and I was instructed to call money gram. After speaking to two different representatives, and a manager, I was instructed to submit a form that they emailed me to have them re-issued that would take 20 days! I would have to then pay, $18 each! I was only then offered by the manager, to have the form faxed to me and I would resubmit it that would take eight days, and I would have to pay $45 each to have them re-issued! They provide no service, to cancel the numbers that were not deposited and re-issue! I find it completely unacceptable, along with the fact that this company has been outsourced!! Never use this company if you need to have insurance on any transaction that you've made! I am beyond disgusted! Never use them!

I went through about 3 months of security clearance, where i had to send passports etc for ID verification. I was then " cleared" safe to use money gram. After 3 months of sending the same amount of money to my family in Africa, i could not log into my account all of a sudden. It told me i have been blocked. I rang them to see why i could not log and they told me for security reasons i cannot use the online services anymore....i asked what the issue is and what breach i had caused they told me for security reasons they could not tell me why they are blocking me from my online account. After going through all that security stuff only for this happen and also for them to not even bother to explain why they are blocking i find that very very poor customer service and very very shocking.

My fault ... read the reviews but i though i'd give them a try & save some money from what the bank would charge. Waste of time is right word for this company. Tried to send money to family online following instructions and from my bank account after giving passport details etc etc. They send email saying you need to call us, and when you call i waited for a decision (i presume to decide whether i was a criminal or not) then they hang up ( i hope by mistake??) I ring again and i go through the same process giving my shoe size in the process (might as well:-), then to get that security does not allow proceeding and that you need to go to your local office.....i knew that but it costs 3 times as much and i'd have to go to town. Very poor way to do business. MONEYGRAM ... IF YOU CAN'T OFFER THAT SERVICE, PLEASE DON'T ADVERTISE IT as you annoy people unnecessarily! Not recommended, pay a bit more and go to your bank or use another company. I hope this review helps someone.

Do not use this company to transfer any money. There is a reason why they're are so many complaints and scams with this company. I was scammed out of $200. I notified the company about it and received 1 message while I was at work. The associate spoken so quickly and had a string accent I couldn't make out what she was saying, of the number to call back. I even had 3 other people from my office try to listen and make it out, but no one could. I called back the number on my caller ID (which was different) and was directed to a voicemail system. I left a message stating I work Monday thru Friday till 6pm. The next day....2 days after my formal complaint.... I received an email say there had been several attempts to contact me and they had been unsuccessful. I received one missed call might I add. I replied to the e-mail, once again, letting them know that I could only be contacted on my office line when they call during the day. Few days later I receive another email saying they tried the new contact number several times and had been unsuccessful so they are closing the case. Mind you, this line/number I provided them is my office line. I am at my desk from 8-6 every day. All incoming calls/numbers are logged through my company. Not ONCE did I ever receive a call from them. This company is a joke, that is known for uncountable fraud and scams to people. I had only wished I had done my research before using them and losing $200!

I just started creating account and at the end I have been ask to call a number to more verification. I called them and asked so many questions regarding the purpose of sending the money. I let them know that it will be simply paying off a personal loan from my cousin, but they didn't happy with the answer and keep asking a specific reason that what will do with that money. I have no idea how to answer it and how the hell I know how would they spend that money?? Initially they said this is a very regulated company... who cares... they are so many other companies in the market with easy steps and good rates too...

I spent three hours trying to use the online service. It wouldn't accept my passport details. Tried to input the 44 digits manually ( have you ever tried to type 44 digits code manually??!) and despite the big sign that the chevrons must be included it wouldn't let me submit the code due to "unauthorised characters ". I even copied the chevrons from their example and still didn't work. When I phoned up the online number recommended by the website the lay on the phone just literally repeated the line written on the website saying that my identity can't be verified. Thank you so much, I just called you to tell you the same thing !

I went to transfer for the firsat time money via MG from my own account in Finland to my own accounbt in Cambodia. The cost for 300€ was 18€ or so I thought untill I received the receipt.. in the end I ended up paying 28€ for just 300€!!! Nowhere they mentiuoned they would take 10€ extra. Also it happens to be sunday and since their offices are within banks theyre all closed. And I need to starve one more day. I filed a complain for the fees they charged demanding to reduce them to same level as Western Union! So horrible company!!! Use WU if U cant use normal agencies.

I have been a customer for eight years sending cash to my hungry friends in the Philippines without problems but now they want to now the senders and collectors personal business. They froze my account claiming I had tried three times to log in and failed so was a security risk which is untrue.

These are the most bad mannered people I have met.

I have been sending a regular monthly payment to my friend in Paris for the last 3 years. System worked OK until the last couple of months. First moneygram introduces a new layer of security to check that you are signing in on the same device. I always have used the same laptop, but everytime I sign on it says 'we do not recognise your device'. Each time I have to get a code sent to my email and enter this into the system. I raise this with MoneyGram who promise to look into it, but no resolution. Last month my friend was asked for the amount transferred in £ and euros, which she did not know, so had to get back to me and check. This month she was asked how did she know me, where had we met etc etc, and was then told that I would have to attend the agent in person with my passport ID to verify the transaction. She said this would be difficult since I lived in London. Calls to MoneyGram then ensued and she was told the transaction had been cancelled. I checked on my account but the transaction was still listed as 'awaiting pick up'. So I call MoneyGram and am asked how do I know this person, what is our relationship, where did we meet etc etc. I point out that I have been sending the same money every month for the last three years, and this is the first time that this has come up. Eventually they tell me that they are satisfied with my explanation, but they are suspicious about my friend, and she has been blocked as a receiver. I ask them why, and they say they cannot tell me, but that 'she knows the reason'. And that this is a final decision, and that there is no appeal. I point out that on my account the transfer is still listed as 'awaiting pick up' and that I had received no email to inform me of the cancellation. I am them told that first that this is 'in process', and then that I need to speak to another department to claim the reimbursement. The other department tells me that the transfer is not yet cancelled, but will be, and that it will take 3-10 working days for me to receive the repayment. Excessive in my opinion when it takes them 10 minutes to claim the money from my bank account. I then call my friend, and she assures me that she has no idea of the reason - simply that they had asked her these questions, and asked for me to attend in person, and that she had told them this would be difficult since I was in London. I go on to the moneygram website to make a complaint. However, having logged on once (and requested a code to address the problem described above), you are asked to log in again to fill out the complaint form. You are then sent back to the main page, and when you click on the link to the complaint form you are then asked to log in again - and round and round in circles, so it is impossible to send the complaint. I guess I may need to go to the Financial Ombudsman to receive a satisfactory resolution, but will endure customer service one more time. In brief, when it works, it works, but my experience, alongside that of many users in this forum, is that their security procedures seem very random. In my case they have transferred around £20,000 over three years, and accepted over £1,000 in commission, only, at the end to treat my friend and me like naughty children. I would suggest that one steers well clear of this company.

I would give them no stars.They asked me many intrusive questions for a small payment I was sending to a friend such as how do you know her, ,when did you last see her,what is the money for. This should be banned by law especially for small payments. Eventually I was told the money was ready for collection and she was very happy as it was urgently needed.When she went to collect it she was told it was "on hold" and she left the shop in tears,and thought I had lied that it was ready and cancelled the payment.This put a large strain on our friendship all because MONEYGRAM had lied to me that the money was ready for collection.I wasted hours phoning them and eventually was told that moneygram do not have a system to apologise to customers.Utter nonsense..An e-mail or letter could be sent by any company to apologise and admit their mistake. Are Moneygram so full of themselves that they will not admit to their mistakes.? I would suggest every one avoids this company and refers their complaints to the Ombudsman.If enough people complain perhaps some action will be taken against this excuse for a company. There are many providers of electronic transfers so there is a wide choice and in my experience competitive pricing and efficient service from other companies.

I won't give them any star if it was up to me. I phoned in to ask if I could update the name of a recipient for a transaction(I used her married name, but her ID has her maiden name). After explaining everything to the first guy, he told me they can't update the name and I'll have to cancel. He said he was going to transfer me to another depertment. So, the next guy came on and said "how can I help you?". So I was like, oh, so the other guy didn't brief you? And so I explained everything again, the guy then said, I can't hear you, so I kept walking around to see if that would help, but he kept saying I can't hear you. So I said, can you call me back then and he said "I'm not allowed to do that." So I said, that means you can hear me now, and then he hung on me. I called back and a guy picked up and then I said, the other person just hung up on me and then, he hung up too. I called again and I just went straight to cancel the transaction. Horrible people, horrible customer service

Folks, I don't have time for this but thought I would share my experience, to save you some trouble! I needed a couple of blank money orders from my bank.. My bank happen to be out of money orders and suggest I go to Walmart across the street to purchase them the teller also said "and it's only .70 cents each, compared to the bank's $4.00 each. Wow, that's awesome right? Wait until I find out it was so (WRONG)‼️ Any way, I went across the street to Walmart and purchased 2 "MoneyGram" money orders.. To make a long story short.. I ended up not needing the money orders. So, I took both blank money orders, the stubs, and my id back to Walmart the next day to get my money back...... Are you ready for this?? The cashier took the money orders and attempted to cash them for me. She ran the first one through their register system thing as if she was cashing a check, it got declined and printed a receipt with a reason code 2. The cashier then told me that it won't allow her to cash it so I need to call "synergy customer service" (that's the check system company MoneyGram goes through). Ok. So, I called synergy customer service, who then had the nerves to tell me that (Just because I purchased the money orders at the same location of cashing, doesn't guarantee they will cash it.. WTH??!! The cashier said synergy goes by risk factors and because I've never cashed a check through them makes me a high risk to cash the money order that I used cash to purchase. What kind of rule is that?? Yes, you can walk into Walmart, purchase some funky MoneyGram money orders, but you can't return them.. And, they get to keep the money you paid to purchase the moneyOrder! Get the hell out of here!! You get rich while we get screwed! Never Again!

I tried sending just $40 online, and I got this Indian lady at first who told me to keep this discussion professional. I ask her why? What is she talking about, all I said was I want to cancel the transaction due to an error on the receiver's first name. She said I said something before that and was asking me what I said, I just lost it with her. Then later, I called again and cancelled it with a different agent this time a male, then I resend the money and got another INDIAN lady this time to confirm. Mind you, it's a lousy 40 bucks, this time the lady started asking me how do I know this person, I said a friend and she asked, 'where did you meet this person and what is this person going to do with the money?' I was like how is that your concern? What do people use money for? She said money gram has the right to interrogate me about my money and right to refuse transaction. Then she kept me on the phone for a while and comes back and said I will receive an email saying the transaction was declined and I will have to go and send this money in person at a money gram location, like there isn't different options for me. I was wondering if that intrusive questioning arose because of my accent and last name? Would she had done the same time with a person with an American accent? I just dropped the phone and send the money with Western Union immediately and paid $1 less than with money gram. Their customer service was great. Stop using these idiots who treats you like they're doing you a favor. If they don't have my commission they don't get paid and they're out of business. I want Walmart or Amazon or these big guys to get into this business and destroy the money gram. They're just too obnoxious for my taste. Whenever I called them, someone always seems to behave as if they're omnipotent.

Simply wanted to send some money home for house refurbishments and bills but wasn't possible. I simply had the worst experience ever with a money transfer service. Moneygram seriously need to change their security policies and improve services overall. BEWARE:1. Moneygram doesn't have a standar security procedure so the person collecting will have difficulties in getting the money. 2. It takes ages to get the money back if you cancel -normally 10 business days but it was over 30 days in my case... Read full story below: The person who went to collect the money wasn't close family. Moneygram started asking him a thousand questions , that only someone like your wife or who lives in the same house would know. Then, they ask him to come up with a story - how he knows me, how we met, when we met last time, etc. Seriously?!That is so ridiculous! The poor guy went 3 times and each time they were asking different questions- so there is no standard security procedure either. Great! Now please give me my money back so I can use another company and get this done. Simple right? No way- I had to call at least 5 times, it takes ages to go through the automated phone system options until you speak to an actual person. The line quality was very poor so they can't understand what you say and the waiting time if you want your money back is 10 Working days which is actually 14 days in total. I had to wait over 30 days because they messed it up. So to sum it all up- I couldn't send the money because of ridiculous security procedures, I asked for a refund and got my money back after over a month.With what right you are holding my money for 30 days or even the advertised 10 working days?! That's what I want to know

Moneygram is a scam. It is very unsafe. Do not use it. If someone asks you to use it, do not trust them. They say you need a reference number to pick up a transfer, but you do not and I know multiple people including myself who got scammed because of this.
