MoneyGram’s anti-fraud campaign cautions consumers to be vigilant against scams, as fraudsters regularly attempt to deceive consumers into sending money via wire transfer or money order. As part of the company’s ongoing efforts to protect consumers from fraud, MoneyGram recently launched an enhanced version of its fraud prevention website – moneygram-preventfraud.com. MoneyGram recommends that before initiating a money transfer, consumers should:
- Know – Always know the person to whom you are sending money. Never send money to strangers.
- Show – Never show or share information about your money transfer to anyone but the recipient.
- Throw – Discard or throw away any offers that promise easy ways to earn money, especially if the offers require you to send money before earning money.
