The deadline to file a claim was May 31, 2018.

The Office of the Attorney General is dedicated to helping protect Kentuckians from scams and fraud.

In January 2017, Attorney General Andy Beshear announced a multistate settlement where Western Union agreed to pay $586 million in restitution to scam and fraud victims.

Nearly 7,000 Kentuckians have already filed a complaint with either the Federal Trade Commission, the Office of Attorney General or Western Union to try and recoup the money they have lost.

However, many other consumers – maybe you or someone you know – may not have known about this settlement and might need to file a complaint. If you believe you lost money through a fraudulent wire transfer through Western Union from Jan. 1, 2004 – Jan. 19, 2017 you may be eligible for repayment.

To be considered as part of this settlement you will be required to submit a formal petition by contacting the court appointed Western Union Remission Administrator at

The administrator's phone number is 844-319-2124 and email

In November 2017, Beshear asked Kentuckians to take action because the timeframe to contact the administrator to see if you qualify ends May 31, 2018.
