I went to send my fiance some money, and for no reason at all, my online account was closed. When I asked why, she said she didn't know, and there was nobody for me to talk to in order to find out, either.

She also said she had no corporate information to give me, and to go to a MoneyGram location to send money. Why would I do that and give them my money for this nonsense? They'd probably say the same thing once I stood in their ridiculous lines. Waste of gas, money, and time.

I've been sending money with this company for years. What's wrong with them? No recourse or appeal department? I'd say their customer service is one of the worst I've experienced.

And, they refused to let me send money to a woman I knew in Africa last year. They have a serious problem. I will never do business with them again ...

even if they resolve this somehow. Isn't there a government agency who deals with complaints like this?

This reviewer shared experience about "closed my online account" and wants this business to offer any options to resolve the issue. ReneeFoxx is overall dissatisfied with Moneygram. The most disappointing about moneygram money transfer at Moneygram was closing my account for no reason Reviewer wants customer support to reach our to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.

They have done the same thing with my account. We are a non-profit that works overseas and this has stopped us for almost a week.

Why would they do this? I have been sending weekly for years to the same people. No one I call or get transferred to can help. They they me to go do it in person.

I did. Three times at three different Wal-Marts.

I already do them in person every time. Then they disconnected me

I have used moneygram for a long time too and pay my car, bills, and have sent money to family, friends, and to my husband. I have been living in Morocco with my husband for over 9 months now.

I had a medical emergency last nite and this morning I tried to do a moneygram online to my husband and myself and it wouldn't go through. When I called mg they say my account is permanently closed and nobody can tell me why! I cannot believe these people!

Could they not have sent me an email to advise me to contact them? Unbelievable!!!

I completely agree!What an unprofessional, pathetic and frankly, worthless company.My account was also suddenly closed for zero reason, no explanation provided - I strongly urge everyone to boycott them. I regret signing up and will do my best to warn others off them.

I too had this problem. Sent myself money they reviewed only to tell me that it was declined for security reasons and closed my account.

Tried to make new account with new email.

They have blocked my name and number from doing so. Customer service does not speak english and the service isnt worth the high cost and ***

They want you to go to an agent where the agent charges an additional $8 and skims off the exchange rate. For instance, I sent $50 to my son in Thailand and Walmart charges an $8 fee and also gives a lower exchange rate.

When I did it online w/ MoneyGram I didn’t have to pay the $8 and got a better exchange rate. Now, they cancelled my account and said it was security reasons. I called BS on them. Going to contact BBB and State AG.

Nobody could give me a reason except their security system. ***

I use MoneyGram online to transfer money from my personal Bank in U.S.A to friends and families not in U.S

MoneyGram security closed my online account without any notice or explanations?

I contacted customer services via chat and phone and told me that my account with MoneyGram is closed from security department.

I asked the customer service about my account and they told me the account is closed and I am not allowed to use MoneyGram online services and I have to go to local MoneyGram locations and pay cash.

I asked to speak with supervisor or manager and he told me that there is no supervisor or manager available to speak with me.

MoneyGram account closed and no one can tell me why. Representative said it was for security reasons, but not able to tell me what kind of security reason.

Representative also said that I can not create another online account and would need to go to a physical location to send money. I do not understand this. They have my personal financial information but I can't use the account!!!!!!!!!

That is very weird to me.

Had no idea I would find these many complaints about MoneyGram. Now I'm concerned about them and their security.

I went the BBB route, got an apology, they opened back up my account and gave me a friend send, but you know something? I still haven't used them and doubt that I will.

They keep hiring fools at that company and I'm sick of customer service at many different businesses messing with customers. They don't get another chance to do that to me again!!!!!!

Start at the top by filing a complaint with the Consumer Protection Bureau in DC. In California, we have the Department of Business Operations.

If they find the business is conducting unlawful operations, or acting inappropriately, their business license will be suspended.

However, I'd file a complaint, any complaint if you feel you've been wronged and make MoneyGram explain and deny. Hah!

My account was closed, after numerous transactions, because my bank is in one country and I in another. Keep in mind, I had made transactions for YEARS!

Yet, they abruptly closed it and would not tell me why.

I can only assume that is the reason. I hope they lose all their customers.
