Customers of WalMart’s Money Gram Service or Western Union, Please be advised that before you send money to anyone that you have never met in person (ie a friend, child, relatives OK) at the moment that the send button is hit, YOUR MONEY CANNOT BE RECOVERED…. I have read alot of reports on this page about people being scammed. If you are buying something from someone, try doing it in your own state/country/town…. that way when the goods/services are rendered the payment will be as well. If you are stupid enough to allow someone to take your money that way, do not expect moneygram to return it. My advise is that unless it is an emergency situation, do not even consider using these services. If you have to always request that the receiver show govt ID or use a password that only you/they know and if you use the service multiple times, use new passwords everytime. Also, the paper work that they give you, either keep in a safe place or destroy after money is received.
