Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions
Issues Emergency Order to Cease and Desist and
Suspends the License for a Money Transmitter


May 17, 2013

BATON ROUGE, LA - On May 3, 2013, the Commissioner of the Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions (OFI), John Ducrest, issued an Emergency Order to Cease and Desist and Suspend the License against a licensed money transmitter, Global Money Remittance, Inc. ("Global"), Miami, Florida. The Emergency Order is effective immediately and requires Global's two locations in the State of Louisiana to stop accepting funds for transfer. The complete list of locations is below.

The OFI is currently investigating allegations that the company has, in several instances, failed to transmit money to intended recipients. It is unknown at this time how many Louisiana consumers have been impacted. If you have initiated a money transfer through Global, or InterTransfers, Inc., that has not been delivered to the intended recipient, you should immediately file a complaint with this Office. OFI will then notify Global's surety bond company of your claim against Global and the bond.
