Fraud can violate civil law (e.g., a fraud victim may sue the fraud perpetrator to avoid the fraud or recover monetary compensation) or criminal law (e.g., a fraud perpetrator may be prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities), or it may cause no loss of money, property, or legal right but still be an element of another civil or criminal wrong.

THE DEADLINE TO FILE A CLAIM ONLINE OR BY MAIL
August 31, 2021
You don’t have to be a US citizen or in the US to file a claim.
If you already returned a prefilled form to Gilardi & Co. LLC, you don’t need to file another claim.
If you have not been contacted or previously filed a claim, you can file online, or print the claim form and mail it in with copies of MoneyGram receipts, “send” forms, and transaction history reports.
Do not worry if you do not have all of your receipts – you can file and address the missing receipts later. MoneyGram does have all of these records. The most important thing is to send a claim before the deadline – even if it is incomplete.
The claim form requires you to give your Social Security number (SSN) (for U.S. residents). That’s because the federal Treasury Offset Program must find out whether you owe money to the US government before you can get a payment. It needs your SSN to do that – if you do not live in the U.S. and have a SSN you can use the paper form and submit it by mail.
You don’t have to pay fees to file your claim.
You don’t need a lawyer to file a claim. Don’t pay anyone who contacts you and says they’ll help you file a claim or get your money back.
When you file a claim, you have to give a MoneyGram money transfer control number (MTCN), an eight-digit number assigned to a MoneyGram transfer. It’s listed on MoneyGram receipts and completed “send” forms. If you do not have them, try to provide as much information as possible – remember that if you sent the money online, your MoneyGram account will have those transaction numbers in your account.
