Western Union’s money transfer system

The FTC is alerting consumers who lost money to scammers who told them to pay via Western Union’s money transfer system between January 1, 2004, and January 19, 2017, that they can now file a claim to get their money back.  Refunds may be claimed by going to FTC.gov/WU before February 12.  The refund program follows a settlement with the Western Union Company, which in January 2017 agreed to pay $586 million to resolve charges brought by the FTC and the U. S. Department of Justice.  Non-U.S. consumers who lost money through fraud-induced wire transfers may also file claims for refunds.
