Beware of "Your Western Union(WU) Account Online Access is Due to Expire" Phishing Scam

Western Union users who have received emails like the one below, which claim their accounts are due to expire, are asked not to click on the links in them.

And, once the cybercriminals have received the stolen credentials, they will use it to gain access to their potential victims' accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.
