Money Order Tips

MoneyGram money orders offer you convenience, reliability and easy availability. However, it is important to remember that money orders should be treated with the same care as checks, or cash. Like many forms of money, if lost or stolen, you may not be able to recoup the loss. Following are some useful tips to keep you and your money order transactions safe.

  • Fill out the money order – immediately and completely – the payee, purchaser, and address information
  • Do not leave blank spaces
  • Use black gel ink – it’s more difficult to remove by fraudsters
  • Keep your receipt until the payment has been received and you receive confirmation
  • Deliver your money order in person – avoid using payment drop boxes

 

Improving For Your Security

MoneyGram continues to improve the security features of our money orders to make it more challenging for fraudsters to alter valid money orders. Our latest generation of money orders includes enhanced security features for your protection including paper that deters alteration
and embedded watermark and UV fibers.
