*UPDATE Employee: It's not just us
*Consumer Comment: Walmart should still refund the money
*UPDATE Employee: Walmart's policy on money orders
*Consumer Comment: two questions
On the back side of the money order there is a section titled Purchaser's agreement. The agreement states: "You, the purchaser agree to immediately complete the money order by filling in the front of the money order signing and addressing it at the bottom. The terms of this money order bind you, your heirs, or others who receive this money order from you."
In compliance with the terms of the money order, I filled in all of the blanks on the front of the money order.
When I presented the money order to Walmart for a refund they denied the refund - with the statement that the money order is third party. (First party would be me - my name is on the money order and I had the receipt stub, second party would be the person who I issued the money order to, third party would be another party to whom the money order was later issued - so I am not the third party - I am the first party). Walmart would hear nothing of it and would not refund my money.
Walmart does not honor their own money orders - and it appears many - if not all other financial institutions also do not honor Walmart's money orders. Further - Walmart will not refund your money for a Walmart issued Money order.
The post office is the proper place to buy a money order - not walmart. It appears to me that Walmart is issuing bad checks. They are so bad that Walmart will not even take them.
