Fraud victims in the Caribbean are set to receive money from the Western Union in recovery of remissions.
This is according to the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) which announced that distribution of US $40 million under the Western Union Remission Fund had begun.
The DOJ said that about 25,000 people living in the Caribbean, the United States and other places will receive payments, noting that the victims will recover the full amount of their losses.
This is the first distribution in the second phase of the Western Union Remission distributions, Loop News reports.
The first phase of distributions paid more than US$365 million to over 148,000 victims, all of whom received full compensation for their losses.
