Dave Lieber, founder of WatchdogNation.com , is like a pit bull that won’t let go of your leg. He’s chomping on MoneyGram International now because on the 1-year anniversary of the Federal Trade Commission’s $18 million settlement with the company, he wants to see if MoneyGram is still wiring money from innocent grandmothers to crooks in Canada. Answer: Sadly, YES.
One out of 10 Canadian agents working for MoneyGram International were willinng partners in fraudulent activities that scammed Americans out of at least $84 million. But that’s not the worst. The Federal Trade Commission says executives at the Minnesota-based company knew about the fraud and did little, if anything.
