Scam - "Western Union Maintenance Error in Account Information" Fraudulent Email and Website

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

I just received the text below from +17035945571, which claims the Western Union has detected an error in my account information, but I do not have a Western Union account. The link in the text goes to a fake and fraudulent Western Union created by cybercriminals. The fake website will ask visitors to sign into their account with their Western Union credentials, but attempts to do so will send their credentials to the cybercriminals behind the scam.

Please continue reading below.

Once the cybercriminals receive the stolen credentials, they will use it to gain access to their potential victims' accounts and use them fraudulently.
