Money Gram Refund Program Opens to Take Claims

If you used MoneyGram to send money to a scammer between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2017, you may be eligible to file a claim for a refund. The company handling claims — Gilardi & Co. LLC — is distributing $125 million from MoneyGram’s 2018 settlements with the FTC and Department of Justice (DOJ). In those cases, the FTC and DOJ charged that MoneyGram failed to meet agreements to crack down on consumer fraud involving money transfers.

You’re eligible to file a claim if:

  • you sent a MoneyGram transfer to a scammer from the United States between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2017, and
  • you used your name on the money transfer.

The deadline to file a claim online or by mail is 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. You can file online, or print the claim form and mail it in with copies of MoneyGram receipts, “send” forms, and transaction history reports.

The claim form requires you to give your Social Security number (SSN). 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.

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.

(UPDATED) Harvest Point Subdivision: Multiple Vehicle Burglaries, Stolen Vehicle, Vehicle Pursuit in Last 48 Hours

Updated (9/24/2021) – SHPD detectives have arrested a 16 year old and 15 year old on charges of attempted first degree murder for their actions related to the below incident. At least one gunshot was fired in the direction of officers while they were involved in a foot pursuit after they located the unoccupied vehicle. Other charges for the two are pending. Other individuals that were involved have been identified and criminal charges will be forthcoming.

Spring Hill, TN – We have taken several reports in the last 48 hours from the Harvest Point Subdivision which is located in southwest Spring Hill off of Cleburne Rd. Those reports include:

Carraway Lane – stolen vehicle, 2 vehicle burglaries (May 28th-May29th)

Crutcher Lane/Violet Drive/Green Farm Way – Vehicle burglaries, stolen vehicle (May 29th between 10 PM and 11 PM)

During the overnight hours of May 28th to May 29th a vehicle was stolen from Carraway Ln and there were 2 vehicle burglaries on Carraway Ln.

On May 29th at 10:48 PM a complainant called into the Emergency Communications Center and reported that subjects driving a white Chevy Malibu and black SUV were attempting to enter or did enter several vehicles in the Harvest Pointe subdivision. A short time later an officer located a white Chevy Malibu on Beechcroft Rd headed east bound. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle for investigatory reasons but the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed. The pursuit was terminated in accordance with policy.

On May 29th at 11:05 PM an SHPD officer observed a black Ford Escape (possibly the one from the earlier all) commit a traffic violation in the area of Cleburne Rd. and Beechcroft Rd. The officer activated his emergency lights and siren and the vehicle did not stop as it headed on Cleburne Rd. towards the city limits. The pursuit continued to the parking lot of Spring Hill High School and then to Richmond Rd. via a gravel service road. Officers lost sight of the vehicle at one point and it was found in a ditch on nearby Richmond Rd. There was no one inside of the vehicle.

The driver of the Escape is described as a white male who was wearing a dark colored with multi-colored paint on it. We are asking all home-owners with cameras in this area to check footage on May 29th from 10 PM to 11 PM.

TBI Launches TN KidKit, New Resource for Parents and Guardians

Please read about this valuable resource from the TBI to quickly assist in locating missing children.

NASHVILLE – Today, to coincide with National Missing Children’s Day, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation launched TN KidKit, a resource to help parents and guardians document key details about the children in their care, just in case an emergency should arise.

“When a child goes missing, every second matters,” said Shelly Smitherman, TBI’s Assistant Special Agent in Charge overseeing the Bureau’s missing children efforts. “So, too, does having the right kind of information.”

TN KidKit provides parents and guardians an easy-to-use way to compile key facts, photographs and additional relevant information about their children, which can then be printed or digitally stored to easily share with law enforcement if a child in their care were to go missing.

“We work too many missing children cases in which parents don’t have a suitable picture of their children or can’t recall their height, weight, or other key facts,” said Smitherman. “Trying to remember them when their child is missing is understandably tough and can often slow down an initial search. That’s why we’d encourage every parent to take a few minutes to fill out a TN KidKit – and update it regularly – just in case it might help when it matters most.”

The resources, along with more information about missing children in Tennessee, can be found online at www.TNKidKit.com.
