Scammers sometimes ask victims of Medicare fraud to pay via Western Union. Those who lost money to a scammer and paid using Western Union between January 1, 2004, and January 19, 2017, can ask for money back because of a Federal Trade Commission settlement. The deadline to file claims has been extended to May 31, 2018. Start at FTC.gov/WU
to file a claim. For more information read a story
