Security from Online Fraud

Protect Yourself

Using to send money online is fast, convenient, and reliable. As with any online service, a few simple steps can help protect you:

  • Never share your password with anyone.
  • If you think someone may have your password, change it immediately.
  • Make sure your password is unique and hard to guess.
  • Use a password that includes both letters and numbers.
  • Never use your email address as your password.
  • Change your password regularly.
  • Don’t use the same password that you use for any other online service.

If someone contacts you claiming to be Western Union and asking for your password or inviting you to click on a link, don’t do it. Instead, forward any suspicious emails to

Remember, Western Union will never send you an email asking for your user ID or password.
