Why do I need this bond?
Money transmitter bonds ensure that principals (money transmitter professionals) comply with the Money Transmitter Act in Title 40, Chapter 22 of the Wyoming Statutes. Violations include:
- Net worth becoming inadequate or the licensee becomes insolvent
- Licensee refuses to permit commissioner to conduct permitted investigations
- Licensee conducts business in an unsafe or unsound manner
In the event that the principal violates the terms of the act, claims can be filed against the surety bond. The bond will pay out for damages up to the full amount of its coverage, and the principal must reimburse the bond for any paid claims.
