Have you sent funds to a fraudster through Western Union?

Have you sent funds to a fraudster through Western Union?

If you’ve been a victim of a fraud and sent funds through Western Union you may be eligible to submit a claim; the deadline is May 31, 2018.

Last year the American Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice determined the company did not take the necessary measures to protect citizens against fraudsters who use Western Union to wire money.

Police are taking this opportunity to advise the public that they may be eligible to submit a claim, if they used Western Union to transfer funds to a fraudster between January 2004 and January 2017.

Police will not be able to address queries regarding the specifics of the refund. Citizens are encouraged to visit the following link on the Federal Trade Commission website:
