According to MoneyGram, if a transaction has not processed yet online, meaning the sender has not received an email with the 8 digit reference number, changes are not possible and the sender would just have to cancel the transaction and resend.
If the transaction has completed and the sender received an email with the 8 digit reference number, the sender can go into a MoneyGram agent location with ID to make changes to the receiver's name.
