+1-800-448-1492 to cancel non picked up WU transfers

Postby FrumpyBB » Mon Jun 06, 2011 6:23 pm

As is the nature of these things, the following phone number may be too late for most of whoever is reading this now. However, if, for the benefit of Google, someone of you who suspects or knows is a victim of fraud, has just sent money but it has not been picked up yet, here is what the Western Union website advises you to do:

https://wumt.westernunion.com/WUCOMWEB/ ... curePage=Y" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (scroll all the way down)
* If you think you've been a victim of fraud, contact us at 1-800-448-1492.
* Forward any suspicious emails to spoof@westernunion.com.
It seems to be a toll-free number (for US residents). For anyone else, I think calling it is in all cases cheaper than losing money to a fraudulent person on the internet!
Please try your best to block ALL your scammer´s still incoming messages and calls!
