Western Union Unclaimed Money Transfers Settlement

Quantum was appointed by the Federal district Court in Denver, Colorado as a Lead Class Counsel in a $140,000,000 class action against Western Union for wrongfully failing to advise customers that their money transfers were never delivered and remained with Western Union for on average 5 years. The court approved a settlement for over 1 million Western Union customers which provided them recovery of 100% of their claims. The settlement was successfully appealed to, and affirmed by the United States Supreme Court. Not only did the customers received all their damages, but Western Union must now inform customers that their money transfers were not received and return the funds.
