Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (c) For each payment instrument other than a stored value card sold, the licensee shall require the authorized seller to record the face amount of the payment instrument and the serial number of the payment instrument.
    (d) For each transmission of money, the licensee or authorized seller shall record the date the money was received, the face amount of the payment instrument, the name of the customer, the manner of transmission, including the identity and location of any bank or other financial institution receiving or otherwise involved in accomplishing the transmission, the location to which the money is transmitted if different from the bank or other financial institution required to be recorded, the name of the intended recipient, and the date the transmission was accomplished or the money was refunded to the customer due to an inability to transmit or failure of the intended recipient to receive or obtain the money transmitted. The transmission shall be made by the licensee or authorized seller within 3 business days after the receipt of the money to be transmitted.

The receipt or a separate disclosure at the time of the money transmission shall also include a statement of the licensee's refund procedures as well as a toll-free telephone number for customer assistance. An inadvertent or non-wilful failure to give a consumer the disclosure provided for in this Section shall not constitute a violation of this Act. The licensee or authorized seller shall keep a copy of every receipt in a permanent record book or maintain the data embodied in the receipt using photographic, electronic, or other means.
    (e) For each exchange of money of the United States government or a foreign government to or from money of another government, the licensee or authorized seller shall record the date of the transaction, the amount of the transaction, the amount of funds stated in currency received by the recipient, and the rate of exchange at the time of the transaction. The licensee or authorized seller, in addition to the records required to be kept, shall issue a receipt to each person delivering or depositing money with the licensee or authorized seller indicating the date of the transaction, the amount of the transaction, the service charge, and the name and address of the licensee or authorized seller making the transaction.

    Sec. 90. Enforcement.
    (a) If it appears to the Director that a person has committed or is about to commit a violation of this Act, a rule promulgated under this Act, or an order of the Director, the Director may apply to the circuit court for an order enjoining the person from violating or continuing to violate this Act, the rule, or order and for injunctive or other relief that the nature of the case may require and may, in addition, request the court to assess a civil penalty up to $1,000 along with costs and attorney fees.
    (b) If the Director finds, after an investigation that he considers appropriate, that a licensee or other person is engaged in practices contrary to this Act or to the rules promulgated under this Act, the Director may issue an order directing the licensee or person to cease and desist the violation. The Director may, in addition to or without the issuance of a cease and desist order, assess an administrative penalty up to $1,000 against a licensee for each violation of this Act or the rules promulgated under this Act. The issuance of an order under this Section shall not be a prerequisite to the taking of any action by the Director under this or any other Section of this Act. The Director shall serve notice of his action, including a statement of the reasons for his actions, either personally or by certified mail, return receipt requested. Service by mail shall be deemed completed if the notice is deposited in the post office, postage paid, addressed to the last known address for a license.
    (c) In the case of the issuance of a cease and desist order or assessment order, a hearing may be requested in writing within 30 days after the date of service. The hearing shall be held at the time and place designated by the Director in either the City of Springfield or the City of Chicago. The Director and any administrative law judge designated by him shall have the power to administer oaths and affirmations, subpoena witnesses and compel their attendance, take evidence, authorize the taking of depositions, and require the production of books, papers, correspondence, and other records or information that he considers relevant or material to the inquiry.
    (d) After the Director's final determination under a hearing under this Section, a party to the proceedings whose interests are affected by the Director's final determination shall be entitled to judicial review of that final determination under the Administrative Review Law.
    (e) The costs for administrative hearings shall be set by rule.
    (f) Except as otherwise provided in this Act, a violation of this Act shall subject to the party violating it to a fine of $1,000 for each offense.
    (g) Each transaction in violation of this Act or the rules promulgated under this Act and each day that a violation continues shall be a separate offense.
    (h) A person who engages in conduct requiring a license under this Act and fails to obtain a license from the Director or knowingly makes a false statement, misrepresentation, or false certification in an application, financial statement, account record, report, or other document filed or required to be maintained or filed under this Act or who knowingly makes a false entry or omits a material entry in a document is guilty of a Class 3 felony.
    (i) The Director is authorized to compromise, settle, and collect civil penalties and administrative penalties, as set by rule, with any person for violations of this Act or of any rule or order issued or promulgated under this Act. Any person who, without the required license, engages in conduct requiring a license under this Act shall be liable to the Department in an amount equal to the greater of (i) $5,000 or (ii) an amount of money accepted for transmission plus an amount equal to 3 times the amount accepted for transmission. The Department shall cause any funds so recovered to be deposited in the TOMA Consumer Protection Fund.
    (j) The Director may enter into consent orders at any time with a person to resolve a matter arising under this Act. A consent order must be signed by the person to whom it is issued and must indicate agreement to the terms contained in it. A consent order need not constitute an admission by a person that this Act or a rule or order issued or promulgated under this Act has been violated, nor need it constitute a finding by the Director that the person has violated this Act or a rule or order promulgated under this Act.
    (k) Notwithstanding the issuance of a consent order, the Director may seek civil or criminal penalties or compromise civil penalties concerning matter encompassed by the consent order unless the consent order by its terms expressly precludes the Director from doing so.

    (205 ILCS 657/92)
    Sec. 92. Receivership.
    (a) If the Director determines that a licensee is insolvent or is violating this Act, he or she may appoint a receiver. Under the direction of the Director, the receiver shall, for the purpose of receivership, take possession of and title to the books, records, and assets of the licensee. The Director may require the receiver to provide security in an amount the Director deems proper. Upon appointment of the receiver, the Director shall have published, once each week for 4 consecutive weeks in a newspaper having a general circulation in the community, a notice informing all persons who have claims against the licensee to present them to the receiver. Within 10 days after the receiver takes possession, the licensee may apply to the Circuit Court of Sangamon County to enjoin further proceedings. The receiver may operate the business until the Director determines that possession should be restored to the licensee or that the business should be liquidated.
    (b) If the Director determines that a business in receivership should be liquidated, he or she shall direct the Attorney General to file a complaint in the Circuit Court of the county in which the business is located, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois, for the orderly liquidation and dissolution of the business and for an injunction restraining the licensee and its officers and directors from continuing the operation of the business. Within 30 days after the day the Director determines that the business should be liquidated, the receiver shall file with the Director and with the clerk of the court that has charge of the liquidation a correct list of all creditors, as shown by the licensee's books and records, who have not presented their claims. The list shall state the amount of the claim after allowing all just credits, deductions, and set-offs as shown by the licensee's books. These claims shall be deemed proven unless some interested party files an objection within the time fixed by the Director or court that has charge of the liquidation.
    (c) The General Assembly finds and declares that transmitters of money provide important and vital services to Illinois citizens. It is therefore declared to be the policy of this State that customers who receive these services must be protected from interruptions of services. To carry out this policy and to insure that customers of a licensee are protected if it is determined that a business in receivership should be liquidated, the Director shall make a distribution of moneys collected by the receiver in the following order of priority:
        (1) Allowed claims for the actual necessary expenses
    
of the receivership of the business being liquidated, including:
            (A) reasonable receiver's fees and receiver's
        
attorney's fees approved by the Director;
            (B) all expenses of any preliminary or other
        
examinations into the condition of the receivership;
            (C) all expenses incurred by the Director that
        
are incident to possession and control of any property or records of the licensee's business; and
            (D) reasonable expenses incurred by the Director
        
as the result of business agreements or contractual arrangements necessary to insure that the services of the licensee are delivered to the community without interruption. These business agreements or contractual arrangements may include, but are not limited to, agreements made by the Director, or by the receiver with the approval of the Director, with banks, bonding companies, and other types of financial institutions.
        (2) Allowed unsecured claims for wages or salaries,
    
excluding vacation, severance, and sick leave pay earned by employees within 90 days before the appointment of a receiver.
        (3) Allowed unsecured claims of any tax, and
    
interest and penalty on the tax.
        (4) Allowed unsecured claims, other than a kind
    
specified in items (1), (2), and (3) of this subsection, filed with the Director within the time the Director fixes for filing claims.
        (5) Allowed unsecured claims, other than a kind
    
specified in items (1), (2), and (3) of this subsection, filed with the Director after the time fixed for filing claims by the Director.
        (6) Allowed creditor claims asserted by an owner,
    
member, or stockholder of the business in liquidation.
        (7) After one year from the final dissolution of the
    
licensee's business, all assets not used to satisfy allowed claims shall be distributed pro rata to the owner, owners, members, or stockholders of the business.
    The Director shall pay all claims of equal priority according to the schedule established in this subsection and shall not pay claims of lower priority until all higher priority claims are satisfied. If insufficient assets are available to meet all claims of equal priority, those assets shall be distributed pro rata among those claims. All unclaimed assets of a licensee and the licensee's business shall be deposited with the Director to be paid out when proper claims are presented to the Director.
    (d) Upon the order of the circuit court of the county in which the business being liquidated is located, the receiver may sell or compound any bad or doubtful debt, and on like order may sell the personal property of the business on such terms as the court approves. The receiver shall succeed to whatever rights or remedies the unsecured creditors of the business may have against the owner or owners, operators, stockholders, directors, members, managers, or officers, arising out of their claims against the licensee's business, but nothing contained in this Section shall prevent those creditors from filing their claims in the liquidation proceeding. The receiver may enforce those rights or remedies in any court of competent jurisdiction.
    (e) At the close of a receivership, the receiver shall turn over to the Director all books of account and ledgers of the business for preservation. The Director shall hold all records of receiverships received at any time for a period of 2 years after the close of the receivership. The records may be destroyed at the termination of the 2-year period. All expenses of the receivership including, but not limited to, reasonable receiver's and attorney's fees approved by the Director, all expenses of any preliminary or other examinations into the condition of the licensee's business or the receivership, and all expenses incident to the possession and control of any property or records of the business incurred by the Director shall be paid out of the assets of the licensee's business. These expenses shall be paid before all other claims.
    (f) Upon the filing of a complaint by the Attorney General for the orderly liquidation and dissolution of a licensee's business, as provided in this Act, all pending suits and actions upon unsecured claims against the business shall abate. Nothing contained in this Act, however, prevents these claimants from filing their claims in the liquidation proceeding. If a suit or an action is instituted or maintained by the receiver on any bond or policy of insurance issued pursuant to the requirements of this Act, the bonding or insurance company sued shall not have the right to interpose or maintain any counterclaim based upon subrogation, upon any express or implied agreement of, or right to, indemnity or exoneration, or upon any other express or implied agreement with, or right against, the licensee's business. Nothing contained in this Act prevents the bonding or insurance company from filing this type of claim in the liquidation proceeding.
    (g) A licensee may not terminate its affairs and close up its business unless it has first deposited with the Director an amount of money equal to all of its debts, liabilities, and lawful demands against it including the costs and expenses of a proceeding under this Section, surrendered to the Director its license, and filed with the Director a statement of termination signed by the licensee containing a pronouncement of intent to close up its business and liquidate its liabilities and containing a sworn list itemizing in full all of its debts, liabilities, and lawful demands against it. Corporate licensees must attach to, and make a part of the statement of termination, a copy of a resolution providing for the termination and closing up of the licensee's affairs, certified by the secretary of the licensee and duly adopted at a shareholders' meeting by the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares entitled to vote at the meeting. Upon the filing with the Director of a statement of termination, the Director shall cause notice of that action to be published once each week for 3 consecutive weeks in a public newspaper of general circulation published in the city or village where the business is located, and if no newspaper is published in that place, then in a public newspaper of general circulation nearest to that city or village. The publication shall give notice that the debts, liabilities, and lawful demands against the business will be redeemed by the Director upon demand in writing made by the owner thereof, at any time within 3 years after the date of first publication. After the expiration of the 3-year period, the Director shall return to the person or persons designated in the statement of termination to receive repayment, and in the proportion specified in that statement, any balance of money remaining in his or her possession after first deducting all unpaid costs and expenses incurred in connection with a proceeding under this Section. The Director shall receive for his or her services, exclusive of costs and expenses, 2% of any amount up to $5,000 and 1% of any amount in excess of $5,000 deposited with him or her under this Section by any business. Nothing contained in this Section shall affect or impair the liability of any bonding or insurance company on any bond or insurance policy issued under this Act relating to the business.
