MoneyGram International Inc. (MoneyGram) forfeited $125 million to settle charges brought by the Department of Justice
(DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). During the term of the Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) filed on
November 9, 2012, the company’s anti-money laundering and anti-fraud programs experienced significant weaknesses, which caused
a substantial rise in consumer fraud transactions. In addition, the FTC alleged that MoneyGram violated a court-ordered Stipulated
Permanent Injunction entered on October 21, 2009, by failing to detect and prevent consumer fraud as required.
The United States Postal Inspection Service investigated various schemes in which fraudsters contacted victims and falsely posed as
family members in need or federal law enforcement officials, particularly the Internal Revenue Service. Fraudsters falsely promised
prizes, loans, employment opportunities, discounted products or other financial awards. The fraudsters directed the victims to send money
through MoneyGram to assist relatives, avoid imprisonment or arrest, to claim prizes, receive loans, pay taxes or receive some other form
of financial award. No one received the cash, prizes or other promised items. Gilardi & Co., LLC was hired to serve as the Remission
