Dear WesternUnion Member,

     We recently reviewed you account status and we suspect that your WesternUnion Online Account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the WesternUnion Online Network is our primary concern.

     Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.
     To restore your full account access, please take the folowing steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised.

1.      Login to your WesternUnion account. In case you are not enrolled for WesternUnion Quick Collect Service, you will have to fill in all the required information, including your name and your account number.

2.      Review your recent history for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check your account profile to make sure no change has been made. If any unauthorized activity has taken place on your account, report this to WesternUnion staff immediately.
