I'm going to be watching this one very closely because a lot of scam victims may also be a victim of Western Union in this class action suit! If they are found at fault in this suit this opens a Pandora's box of possibilities against the giant money transfer company!

Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Western Union Over Alleged Unfair and Deceptive Holding Of Sendersâ€™ Unclaimed Money
A class action lawsuit was filed against Western Union in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado (Denver) (Case No. 10-00765-JLK) alleging that Western Union holds onto and makes use of unclaimed money from money transfers that go unredeemed by the intended recipients without notifying customers until abandoned-property laws require it to do so (which in some cases may not be until many, many years later), according to a Courthouse News class action news report.
The Western Union unclaimed money class action complaint reportedly seeks damages for violations of various state consumer laws, conversion and unjust enrichment and declaratory relief barring Western Union from holding unredeemed money for longer than 60 days.
