Kansas AG Sending Notices To 25,000 Kansans To Reach Some Who Might Be Eligible For Refunds

TOPEKA – The Kansas Attorney General’s Office is mailing notices to nearly 25,000 Kansans who may be eligible for a refund of money they sent by wire transfer to scammers, Attorney General Derek Schmidt said last Thursday, April 5.

In 2017, law enforcement officials entered into a settlement with Western Union, which was accused of knowingly allowing its wire-transfer services to be used by scammers to defraud people. As part of the settlement, Western Union set aside $586 million to pay claims from people who lost money to scammers and transmitted the lost funds by Western Union wire transfer. However, to receive a refund, Kansans who have been scammed and qualify for a refund must file a claim with Western Union before May 31, 2018.
