On November 9, 2012, MoneyGram International Inc. (MGI), a global money services
business, agreed to the forfeiture of $100 million as part of a deferred prosecution
agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice. MGI admitted to criminally aiding
and abetting wire fraud through mass marketing and consumer fraud phishing schemes
perpetrated by corrupt MGI agents. The $100 million paid by MGI was forfeited by
the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and will be returned to eligible victims through
the Petition for Remission process. The Department of Justice hired Gilardi & Co.,
LLC to serve as the Remission Administrator for this matter.
Pre-filled petitions were sent on July 22, 2013 to petitioners who previously reported
fraud activity to MoneyGram. Individuals who believe they are a victim of the MoneyGram
fraud, but did not receive a pre-filled petition, must complete and submit the approved
petition for remission form available on this site in order to be considered for

transfer through MGI in the United States or Canada to a payee in the United States
or Canada between January 1, 2004 and August 31, 2009 you may be eligible for remission.
If you would like to be involved in the remission distribution your
