Wire scammed? Get some money back!

Did you get caught in an online romance scam?

Maybe you got a job offer that turned out to be a fraud.

If you wired money and lost it, you could get some of it back.

If you act quickly.

The deadline to qualify for a Western Union wiring scam settlement has been pushed back for the final time.

A total of $586 million would be up for grabs if you sent money between January 1, 2004, and January 19, 2017.

First, you'll need to file your claim.

The Federal Trade Commission says to give as much information as possible about your loss and upload any receipts or statements if you have them.

They also warn that you will need to give your Social Security number.

That's so that they can check to see if you owe the government first.

The final deadline is Thursday, May 31, 2018.

Waiting any longer will make you ineligible to make a claim.
