FTC revs up money transfer case against Walmart

Payments Dive

The Federal Trade Commission last week doubled down on a lawsuit against Walmart over what it alleges was the retail juggernaut’s failure to protect consumers against fraudulent money transfer scams. 

The federal agency amended its complaint in U.S. District Court for Northern Illinois June 30, adding more counts against Walmart, after an adverse ruling in March. In that decision earlier this year, Judge Manish Shah partially granted a Walmart motion to dismiss the case, jettisoning one of two counts in the case. The FTC alleges Walmart assisted and facilitated violations of a telemarketing sales rule that restricts how telemarketers can do business.
