Attorney General Buddy Caldwell announces the extension of time to submit MoneyGram Remission Forms from November 15, 2013 to September 30, 2014. If you wired funds from a MoneyGram location in the United States or Canada to a payee in the United States or Canada between January 1, 2004 and August 31, 2009, you may be eligible to receive compensation as part of an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice.
In 2012, MoneyGram International Inc. (MGI), a global money services business, agreed to forfeit $100 million as part of a deferred prosecution agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice. MGI admitted to criminally aiding and abetting wire fraud through mass marketing and consumer fraud phishing schemes perpetrated by corrupt MGI agents. The $100 million forfeiture will be used to compensate eligible victims through the Petition for Remission process.
To be considered for compensation, your Remission Form along with your supporting documentation must be received by September 30, 2014.

For questions, please contact the Remission Administrator by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 877-282-2610.
