(UNDATED) - Consumers who were bilked by scammers who used Western Union's money transfer system may be able to get some of their money back.

The Federal Trade Commission brought charges against Western Union, alleging the company ignored hundreds of thousands of complaints and failed to take disciplinary action against agents who looked the other way, and accepted $586 million to resolve the allegations.

Talk Media News reports, now, the FTC is accepting claims from consumers about fraud-induced payments they made for phony lotteries and prizes, family emergencies, advance-fee loans, online dating and other scams.
