Victims of Scammers May Get Some Compensation
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 20, 2017
If you were the victim of a scammer sometime in the last 13 years, you may be able to recover some of what you lost.
Wyomingites who sent payments to scammers using Western Union’s wire transfer service between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017 may now apply for compensation from a $586 million dollar fund administered by the Department of Justice’s Victim Asset Recovery Program. This fund is related to a multi-state settlement that Wyoming and 49 other states, the District of Columbia, and Western Union entered into in January 2017.
According to a release from the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office, Wyomingites who reported to Western Union that they had been the victims of scams using Western Union may receive claim forms in the mail. The forms will contain instructions explaining how consumers may file their claims to receive compensation.
If you believe you may have an eligible claim, please visit the website Western Union Remission.com or call 1-844-319-2124 for more information.
