On January 19, 2017, The Western Union Company (Western Union), a global money services business headquartered in Englewood, Colorado, agreed to forfeit $586 million and entered into agreements with the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.  In its agreement with the Justice Department, Western Union admitted that it violated U.S. laws—The Bank Secrecy Act and anti-fraud statutes—by processing hundreds of thousands of transactions for Western Union agents and others involved in an international consumer fraud scheme. As part of the scheme, fraudsters contacted victims and falsely posed as family members in need or promised prizes or job opportunities. The fraudsters directed the victims to send money through Western Union to help their relative or claim their prize. The Department of Justice hired Gilardi & Co., LLC to serve as the remission administrator in this matter.

If you believe you were a victim of the fraud described above and you made a wire transfer through Western Union between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017, you may be eligible for remission.

In order to be considered for a remission payment, you will be required to submit a Remission Form along with any available supporting documentation. Your petition must be filed electronically here or postmarked on or before May 31, 2018, and mailed to:


P.O. Box 404027
Louisville, KY 40233-4027

El 19 de enero de 2017, The Western Union Company (Western Union), un negocio global de servicios monetarios con sede en Englewood, Colorado, acordó renunciar a $ 586 millones y celebró acuerdos con el Departamento de Justicia y la Comisión Federal de Comercio. En su acuerdo con el Departamento de Justicia, Western Union admitió que violó las leyes de EE. UU. -La Ley de Secreto Bancario y los estatutos antifraude- procesando cientos de miles de transacciones para agentes de Western Union y otras personas involucradas en un esquema internacional de fraude al consumidor. Como parte del plan, los estafadores contactaron a las víctimas y se hicieron pasar por falsos miembros de la familia que los necesitaban o prometieron premios u oportunidades de trabajo. Los estafadores ordenaron a las víctimas enviar dinero a través de Western Union para ayudar a su pariente o reclamar su premio. El Departamento de Justicia contrató a Gilardi & Co., LLC para que se desempeñe como administrador de remisión en este asunto.

Si cree que fue víctima del fraude descrito anteriormente y realizó una transferencia bancaria a través de Western Union entre el 1 de enero de 2004 y el 19 de enero de 2017, es posible que sea elegible para la remisión.

Para ser considerado para un pago de remisión, se le solicitará que presente un Formulario de remisión junto con cualquier documentación de respaldo disponible. Su petición debe ser presentada electrónicamente aquí o con sello postal el 31 de mayo de 2018 o antes, y enviada por correo a:

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
