Western Union Fraud Victims in Kentucky Encouraged to Filed Claims

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear announced Monday that Kentuckians who have been victims of fraud induced wire transfers involving Western Union need to begin filing claims as part of a global settlement reached January with the company. An estimated 7,000 Kentuckians are eligible for roughly $6.7 million in claims. Kentuckians who reported to Western union, the Federal Trade Commission or Beshear’s office that they had been a victim of a scam using Western Union between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017, should receive a claim form in the mail. Beshear said if Kentuckians believe that may have an eligible claim and do not receive a claim form in the mail, they should visit westernunionremission.com or call 844-319-2124.
