Reporting fraud is critical: It helps us educate other consumers and can give authorities information about the latest frauds in the marketplace.
Once you have reported your situation to Western Union, you need to report the fraud to your local law enforcement. Western Union works frequently with police organisations around the world but it’s important to note that our role is not law enforcement and there are inherent dangers in trying to catch criminals, to both our Agents and customers. Because of this, and the fact that receivers can pick up funds anytime, from a broad number of locations, we cooperate with law enforcement agencies to help in the investigation and prosecution of people who take advantage of our services to commit fraud.
