Beware of "Western Union Money Transfer Pickup" Text or Email Message Scams

Western Union customers, if you have received text or email messages claiming that you have received money that is ready for pickup, please do not click on the link in the messages. This is because the messages (see sample below) may be phishing scams that contain a link that goes to a phishing or fake Western Union website that steal Western Union account credentials and personal information.

Please continue reading below.

Therefore, Western Union customers are advised to go directly to https://www.westernunion.com/ and check their money transfer status there instead. This will protect them against phishing scams.
