Money-Gram Reward Complaint
Dated Jan /09/14
My name is Junius T. Thorne and I have doing business with Money-Gram for many years and up until I have been 100% happy with it service. I understand there are a lot of scammers and fraud around the world and the U.S. is probable hit the hardest with scammers and Fraudulent.
If the record was check I have sent Money-Gram many times to Benin Republic and to lady in the Ukraine she have been checked by the U.S. Embassy and found out to be the real person I have received a copy of her personal ID with her picture from her job. I have been working on a project from Benin Republic with the help of an Attorney. All have been verified by other agencies. I have travel the world and that don’t mean I know ever thing but I am very through when it come to my Money I am a retired Federal Worker and I work too hard to just throw it away.
My complaint is on the 31st of December 2013 my Attorney in Benin had left Benin Republic to do some work in Nigeria so in order for me to get the money to him by the 1st because he would not be back in Benin until the 4th of January and that would have been too late. He asks if I could send it to Nigeria and his account person would pick it up there. Anyway the lady that work at Wall Mart Money-Gram no matter where I would send money too she would tell she was surprise that Money-Gram had not put a Red Flag on my name for sending money to Nigeria I said Benin Republic is not Nigeria that is two different countries. The look her face she was upset when I said that. So I gave her the Money-Gram and my money she did something on the computer then she just pick up the phone and handed it to me, I said what is this she said I told you Money-Gram was going to Flag you from sending any money to Nigeria so lady at Money-Gram her English was a littler hard to understand I said what is this about she said the lady at the Money-Gram desk said I was ending money to someone in Nigeria but I could not tell her why that was a lie. So the lady from Money-Gram went on to explain to me about scammers and Fraud and they don’t want me to be taken and that is good. But I told her that I know this person she ask have I seen him I why. We send Money-Gram and Western Union here right in the U.S. we don’t know or even seen the person sometime. I pay my car note at one time with Money-Gram I had never seen those individuals. So please tell me if my name is on a Red Flag I need to know so maybe I can seek some kind of legal advice to clear this up. And what is the rule or the law do your company have the right to refuse a transfer that the customer have requested to send. Like I said I still need to send money to the Ukraine my lady is trying to come to the U.S. I would like a response ASAP
