Now the U.S. Department of Justice is returning the money to those eligible, and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller is happy to see those getting justice in his state.
“Under criminal investigation MoneyGram was aiding and abetting these fraudsters so they've had to pay a penalty of 100 million dollars and that's open now to restitution for all consumers that were harmed,” said Miller.
Miller says it's very unusual for the Department of Justice to come up with an agreement like this.
