Scam number:
  • Email asks you to confirm/update/verify your account data at Western Union by visiting the given link. You will be taken to a spoof website where your details will be captured for the phishers.

  • Western Union never send their users emails requesting personal details in this way.

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website is disguised as " asp/regLogin.asp/confirm/identity/872600# 52763800!@#".

  • The spoof website this email links to was not online at time of this report, but variations of the scam which link to working websites are bound to exist, so be wary! The website may have been taken down or disabled by the hosts, but quite often these websites are hosted on the personal computer of the phishers, so may only be online at certain times.

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website looks nothing like the actual Western Union URL.
"Western Union® has been receiving complaints from our customers for unauthorised use of theWestern Union® accounts."

Dear costumer,

Western Union® has been receiving complaints from our customers for unauthorised use of theWestern Union® accounts. As a result we periodically review Western Union® Accounts and temporarily restrict access of those accounts which we think are vunerable to the unauthorised use.

This message has been sent to you from westernunion because we have noticed invalid login attempts into your account, due to this we are temporarily limiting and restricting your account access until we confirm your identity.
