Western Union Financial Services Inc.

The Arizona Department of Financial Institutions filed charges against the money transfer company for allegedly failing to comply with state reporting laws intended to help combat money laundering and illegal immigration. Western Union collected unusable information on the identity of senders and receivers of money transfers, its record keeping was lax and the company did not properly supervise its agents as required by the state. Western Union agreed to pay a $1.6 million civil penalty, $1 million to a state task force on fraudulent identification and $400,000 to the state Department of Transportation.
