Attorney General Lisa Madigan is urging those who sent money to a scammer through Western Union to file a claim for a refund.
The refunds are part of a nationwide settlement with Western Union…which Attorney General Madigan says knew people were being conned and didn’t do enough to protect them. This includes consumers who fell for phony lottery, prize, IRS and family emergency scams and wired money through the company.
Madigan says you may be able to get some of your money back.
Claims must be filed before February 12th. Visit: westernunionremission.com to start the refund process.
