Protect Yourself from Fraud

Wiring money is effectively like sending cash. Once it has been wired, it cannot be returned. To avoid being scammed, use common sense and follow these tips.

Always:

  • Know who you’re dealing with
  • Research any offer before buying

Never:

  • Send money to anyone you don’t know
  • Wire money to someone you think you know who is supposedly in a crisis, before checking the story and identity first
  • Send money to receive money


If you have been scammed:

  • Report the incident immediately to your local police station
  • Contact MoneyGram 1-800-MONEYGRAM
