WalMart Complaint - Check cashing policy
I purchased a WalMart MoneyOrder/MoneyGram from my WalMart here in Florida to send to my Granddaughter in Texas. I filled out the pay to the order of: to her. She took it to her local WalMart: Athens Texas to cash it. They refused. I called the Manager she told me it is their policy not to cash '3rd party checks'. If I had left the pay to the order of blank or made it out to Walmart they could cash it! What? it was an already paid for WALMART money order! I do not understand why WalMart sells money orders if they are no willing to cash them. She also had proper ID. They were willing to sell it to me be willing to cash it! It was their own product, and they don't stand behind it! Of course my granddaughter received the money order and tried to cash it on a Saturday...they told her to take it to a bank. With this being a holiday weekend and the banks don't open til Tuesday..I sent her that $ to try to help her survive not just for fun.. In this economy people need help..Thanks WalMart for nothing!
