Beware of Unlicensed Money Senders - Tenga Cuidado con Envios de Dinero sin Licencias

 

Choose Money Transmitters Carefully in Maryland

BALTIMORE - Maryland's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation warns Marylanders to use only licensed money transmitters when sending money to family and friends in other countries. "The number of complaints to DLLR's Division of Financial Regulation has increased from people whose the money was stolen by those who were supposed to forward it," said DLLR Secretary James D. Fielder, Jr., Ph.D. "Licensed money transmitters are required by Maryland law to have an insurance bond to cover the loss if your money does not reach its destination."

Legitimate money transmitters must display their Maryland license on the premises and show it to the customer if requested. Do not do business with anyone working out of a car, parking lot, apartment or home that does not appear to be a legitimate business.

If you have been taken advantage of by a money transmitter, you can file a complaint with DLLR's Financial Regulation Enforcement Division by calling (410) 230-6390.

Escoge Transmisores de Dinero Con Cuidado

BALTIMORE - El Departamento de Trabajo, Licencia y Regulación (DLLR) de Maryland advierte que se debe utilizar sólamente envios de dinero licenciados para mandar dinero a la familia y amigos en otros países. "La División de la Regulación Financiera recibe muchas quejas de personas a quien el dinero ha sido robado por los que se supusieron adelantarlo," dijo el Secretario del Departamento, James D. Fielder, Jr., Ph.D. "Las leyes de Maryland requerien que Transmisores con Licencias tengan un bono de seguro para cubrir la pérdida de dinero si el dinero no llega a su destino."

Los transmisores del dinero legítimos deben tener su licencia en exhibición en el local y mostrarsela al cliente si solicitado. Evite haciendo negocios con cualquiera persona que está trabajando de un coche, un terreno, un apartamento o una casa que no parece ser un negocio.

Si un transmisor de dinero se ha aprovechado de usted, puede llamar (410) 230-6390 para dar una queja con la División Financiera.
