Only send money to someone you know. Be wary if you encounter these types of scams:
Unfortunately, scams and consumer fraud happen in the money transfer industry. Some common scams include love scams, fake merchandise websites, lottery scams and Internet or phone scams - to name a few.
You can help us prevent consumer fraud by asking yourself the following questions:
- Is somebody that I met online promising me a personal relationship with them if I send them money for travel expenses?
- Are you sending money to receive a lottery prize or a promise of a large payout?
- Are you sending money to receive merchandise on a website that has promised to send you the goods after they have received money from you?
- Are you sending money to someone you don't know or whose identity you can't verify?
If any of these scenarios pertain to your transfer, please call our Customer Service team immediately at 1‑855‑355‑2144 and request to stop your money transfer. If payment has not yet been received, the funds will be returned to you right away.
