Default Did anyone ever get BLOCKED from Moneygarm or Western Union?

I just got a boot from moneygram today saying I can't use them anymore ever! Did anyone have that experienced before?

No, I don't think the feds get involved. I think they just blacklist you and that's that....

Half this fucking board is probably banned from one or the other or both. It's actually very common.

whatever happened to ''better 99 guilty men go free than to convict an innocent man.''

or the idea of that at least.

maybe the anthem could be abridged to ''o'er the land of the once free...''

Using Homeland Security to go after online gambling. And the Patriot Act. You knew that was going to happen. Any chance or opportunity they get, they will acquire more power. Just like inviting the Devil into your home. Not the won that used to post here. Let's face the facts people. Obama States government is just as corrupt and ruthless as any other country. Only difference is the Constitution and political system has hampered their efforts. But both are now weaker to prevent this bullshit. Elections are a joke. You mave no chance unless you are part of system. Only going to get worse. They can pretty much do anything they want. And do. Fucking pos Obama conducting war without any congressional approval for instance. Sick of it. There really is no place without a corrupt government. All of them are. But at least Canada is not as bad. So me and Cwissy are packing our stuff and heading across Ambassador Bridge as soon as we hit for six.

"Is there a money amount received after which they cut you off?" by SlipperyPete

I don't think there is a particular amount before they cut you off! It is actually the activity of the account that they review every now and then. But of course, the larger it is the more it will attract attention just like what happened to me.

I was also informed by one of my friends who is a lawyer that there is no reason that feds should interfere since the is the nature of their business is to send/received funds by it is a good idea to stay away from it from now on, his advised. OUCH!

So how does that work exactly?

Say, they block SlipperyPete from Brooklyn. But there might be 10 other SlipperyPetes in Manhattan.

I don't know about small transactions but everytime you send/receive four figures or more they will ask for an identification and it is normally your driver's license. That is where they could identify you!

No id when you send under a dime, but if you give the same address, they do keep track.... which I really dont like

But they accept any kind of ID (foreign passport) so a fake ID is always an option

just remember, if u do a transaction, and later on find it is blocked due to mg/wu blacklisting you, it could be difficult getting your money back if you used a fake name to send it, since they need id to refund your money

I've sent a so many deposits under crazy names, you wouldn't even believe.

Preposterous.

Always get a payout by check or bank wire and you will be fine.

Shouldnt do that son. Clevfan is right, you wont be able to get your money back if you use a fake name (but dont have a fake ID to match the name)

The screw up may not even be your fault. If the WU clerk doesnt send the money in US dollars, the book might not be able to pick it up. And WU doesnt change it nowadays on the phone. You gotta cancel the whole thing and send it again. But when you get the refund, you gotta show ID. No ID no refund

The unanswered question is why are people getting blacklisted. Is it because you are not allowed to surpass certain send and receive thresholds? Or is it because of suspected 'illegal' activity and if yes, is it gambling? That is bullshit just by the fact if someone is suspected of doing something illegal, why not contact the proper authorities? They don't because it's not illegal in any way, shape or form. It's just Big Brother putting pressure on Western Union and Moneygram to turn off the water faucet. Did same to PayPal, actually shut down and shook down NETeller, are doing same thing to banks with UIGEA. Just a bully with a stick. You should be able to send or receive $1,000,000 if you want. It's your money, your name, with ID. If there is something illegal, arrest and prosecute or go fuck yourself.
