New Independent Western Union® Money Recovery Program
Western Union Recovery Program Introduction
For the last couple of years, SCARS has been researching legal ways to help scam victims recover their losses.
As a result of our affiliation with one of the world’s largest money recovery companies, we have developed a program that we believe can help scam victims that sent money through Western Union.
If you sent money to a scammer ANYWHERE in the world via Western Union during 2018 & 2019 this program may be able to help you.
NOTE THIS PROGRAM IS NOT OFFERED BY OR ENDORSED IN ANY WAY BY WESTERN UNION. IT IS AN ATTEMPT TO RECOVER MONEY THAT WAS SENT THROUGH THE WESTERN UNION SYSTEM BY SCAM VICTIMS TO SCAMMERS. SCARS, OR MYCHARGEBACK ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH WESTERN UNION IN ANY WAY. NEITHER IS THIS A SOLICITATION BY AN ATTORNEY FOR CLIENTS. ANY DECISION TO PARTICIPATE IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CONSUMER. SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Please read all of the following carefully before making a decision to participate.
You will need to be able to provide proof of the Western Union transfer – a money transfer document or receipt with an MTCN number showing.
See below for the amount of loss limitations.
This is not a one time opportunity, we will continue to accept victim applicants as long as the program is running. Each individual victim will be helped separately. You will be able to speak with a recovery counselor by phone with our partner for this program before going forward or making any commitment.
THIS PROGRAM IS ONLY FOR WESTERN UNION CUSTOMERS – NO ONE ELSE
THIS ONLY APPLIES (RIGHT NOW) FOR MONEY SENT IN 2018 AND 2019 – WE MAY EXPAND THE TIME LATER – NOT NOW
THIS IS ONLY FOR WESTERN UNION PAYMENTS SENT IN 2018 AND 2019
Amount Of Loss
This program is, for now, designed for victims who lost more than US$ 5,000 dollars. This is because of the complexity in getting a recovery. We will notify when the program service partner MyChargeBack.com can extend it below $5,000.
You must have sent money through Western Union during 2018 or 2019 – this limitation applies right now, we may expand this later.
PLEASE NOTE: If you previously applied for the Federal Trade Commission recovery program you DO NOT QUALIFY for those payments. Plus that program cut off in 2017. This program is for payments made in 2018 and 2019.
Why Is This Possible
Why is this possible? Why did no one else do this before now?
Very simple – we have been working on a legal theory with our partner MyChargeBack.com for almost a year. We have performed tests to confirm the legal flaw that this is based on and that we believe it will stand up in court.
We have paid outside lawyers a substantial amount to develop the underpinnings for this program to either go forward into individual lawsuits or other class-actions if needed. We would not go forward without this preparation. The preparation has been costly in time and expense. That expense has been funded by SCARS and MyChargeBack.com
We needed to confirm that we could execute in the United States which is where Western Union is headquartered – the victims can be from any country, but we have to face WU on their home ground.
SCARS spent its own money to perform the legal analysis and preparation for this program and had to verify and qualify its recovery partner. No one else is able to offer this program.
Remember that we are here to help and respond to your needs. SCARS is doing exactly that!
We remind everyone that there is NEVER a guarantee with any legal recovery process. If you cannot accept these conditions, then please do not apply for the program.
We have high confidence in the program that we have jointly developed with our partner (a SCARS Corporate Member and Donor).
Remember that our principals have been helping scam victims for 28 years and our partner is a seasoned money recovery business with years of experience.
If you do not trust in this, you should not participate.
This is not a fairytale, this was developed with a significant amount of time, effort, and cost to help scam victims.
We ask that all those that want to take advantage of this program first register with SCARS by completing the SCARS Membership Form Here » This is so that we can better assist you throughout the process and provide you with any program updates. SCARS Membership for individuals is FREE!
