Wyoming Fraud Victims Can Apply For Western Union Settlement
Wyoming residents who sent money to con artists using Western Union's wire transfer service between 2004 and January 19, 2017, can now apply for money from a $586 million dollar compensation fund.
That's according to a release from the Wyoming Attorney General Consumer Protection Unit. The fund was set up as part of a settlement between Western Union and all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia.
State residents who reported being victims of a scam using Western Union may get claim forms in the mail in the next two weeks. But you can also find out how to apply for a claim online or by calling 1-844-319-2124.
Claim forms need to be mailed back to the settlement administrator by February 12, 2018. The money is being administered by the U.S. Department of Justice's Victim Asset Recovery Program.
