I submitted a payment for $500 and after security review they declined it for no good reason. They told me to take cash to one of their locations. They did not request any information to assess whether there was a security risk or not. They must have me on a black list.

HOW IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT THAN REFUSING TO SERVE BLACK PEOPLE IN A RESTAURANT??

My credit score is 720+ and I have no criminal record. There was nothing provided for them to base their decision to decline OTHER THAN MY ETHNICITY AND NAME.

I THINK MONEYGRAM DISCRIMINATES AGAINST MY ETHNIC GROUP!!!

Reason of review: Pissed for bad treatment.

Monetary Loss: $500.

Preferred solution: Deliver product or service ordered.

Doesn't seem like anyone answered your above question comparing it to refusing to serve black people: Restaurant: restaurant location; won't take your money at all; not helpful/informative about where to go; dirty looks; threats to call police/security to be removed; probably facing federal discrimination suits MoneyGram: they took your money at one point; told you where to go to get service; doesn't sound like there were any dirty looks Hope this helps a bit.

The ethnicity thing could be true they just declined my transactions after uploading my ID , the system said locked my account and transaction declined. I don't know if they see that you're dark skin, automatically they have to deny you. That's very sad.

All years I used Moneygram for sending money my daughter in Ukraine. Country has very difficult time to restore economics and fits Russian aggression.

People no have jobs. I'm working in US more that 20 years,US citizen, my scores between 800 and 900. Yesterday I was driving between Moneygram locations and cannot send money-transactions were rejected without no reason. Twice I did call to Moneygram , but no have explanation.

Usually I send $300. What this is national origin discrimination?

Service like this must be closed and sued.My online account is blocked. I think, when on our country was terrorist's attacks ,Moneygram service was blind and not closed accounts and not decline transactions of terrorist;s helpers.

I am not black, but I had same situation, my credit is 794, and never had any problem with law, in 2 years through moneygram I sent around $15K, and 2 weeks ago all off a sudden they closed my account, I sent money, they reject transaction and no explanation, All they said use another service your account is blocked.

I just had the same experience today. I am a 71 year old white woman with 800 credit score, a business owner and no record .

My profile was shut down and the transaction denied. The tech said he did not know why....which we all know is ridiculous...if it is denied and shutdown, there has to be a reason.

This just happened to me. They cancelled the transaction.

Ive been sending for yrs to my relatives thru walmart to walmart. Did over the walmart limit so I had to send via money gram. Turns out money gram is diffrent and they are an international company...

Im not using that anymore. Sticking with walmart to walmart.The gentlemen I talked to thru money gram was very nice, and he says if you send to much they will cancel the transaction, or they put you on a black list...
