Money Transfer Identity Theft Fraud

Money Transfer Identity Theft Fraud

Hi Folks,

My fiance, who joined a reputed UK Bank last month was duped out of 1500 pounds when the money she transferred to an acquaintance through Western Union was collected by someone else.

The sad part is that the company failed to either verify the fraudster's details properly or to redress the problem that my fiance thus faced. Numerous rounds to police stations and Western Union offices have yielded no results and the police has refused to even lodge a formal complaint.

The reason why I'm posting this here is, that a police officer told her that they had been receiving an increased number of such complaints involving Western Union off late and had no system in place to deal with it.

Has anyone of you been in such trouble and what steps did you take to retrieve your money?
