Dec. 05--North Dakota Attorney

General Wayne Stenehjem announced Friday that

people who were deceived into sending payments to scammers using Western Union's wire transfer

service may be eligible

for compensation.

The Victim Asset Recovery Program Fund has $586 million and was established by Western Union as a condition of a settlement the company reached with all 50 states and the District of Columbia related to fraud-induced money wire transfer services that occurred between Jan. 1, 2004, and Jan. 19, 2017.

The fund will be be administered by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Western Union acknowledged that it failed to take reasonable steps to prevent fraudulent wire transfers, to properly train staff to recognize potential fraud, or to investigate suspicious transactions, according to the Office of the North Dakota Attorney General.

Anyone who lost money in a scam using Western Union wire transfer services is eligible to file a claim. People who previously reported to Western Union or the attorney general's office that were the victims of a scam using Western Union should automatically receive a claim form in the mail. The claim form includes instructions on how to file the claim and receive compensation. Completed forms must but submitted to the settlement administrator by Feb. 12.

Go to http://bit.ly/2nmk0Sr to get a claim form or for more information call the settlement administrator at 1-844-319-2124.
