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

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.
