Default Class Action Lawsuit Western Union

Can anyone tell me if there is a class action lawsuit filed against Western Union on pre-advanced fees on a loan that was never received.? I would like to be included if there is one. Western Union should be sited for negligence because there are people that are accepting money and Western Union does not know who these people are that are taking money from innocent people. Thanks

I wish to inform you that first you may contact the Manager, Customer Advocate Department, Western Union by email or telephone and discuss the matter. If the matter is not resolved then you may contact the Attorney General of your state and the FTC. Alternatively, you may file a lawsuit. The burden of proof will be on you to show that Western Union was negligent in the handling of your monetary transaction. The Court will consider all the facts and decide the matter.

Western Union is only the agent who handles the transfer of funds. If the other party who promised you the loan never sent you the money, it's not WU's fault. WU would only be liable if they actually received the funds to send to you, and they didn't do it.

Sounds like you were scammed, especially when they demanded "upfront fees" for a loan you never received. Happens all the time. Can't sue WU for something that isn't their fault, sorry.

Western Union is famous for its faultless services for the last few years through out the world. Please go through the terms and guidelines by the company before making the move.If they have clarified about the fee in their terms you are not supposed to file the against. But if not, you can always opt for a class action lawyer in consumer protection.

There are insecure transfer protocols used in the transfer of money. You agree to hold them blameless, when the insecurity results in your transfer being stolen.
