The ACCC’s Scamwatch is urging all Australians who lost money to a scammer through Western Union from 2004 to 2017 to take action by 31 May to try to get it back.
Australian consumers can use an online form (link is external). As this is a US-based action the ACCC, and Hume Bank, are unable to make claims on a consumer’s behalf or assist consumers with their claims.
Hume customers that may have fallen victim to a scam that involved sending money via Western Union may benefit from a recent article published on the ACCC’s Scamwatch website.
