Western Union reopens some branches
Three of the seven Western Union locations which were closed due to high incidences of suspected fraudulent transactions have been reopened.
GraceKennedy Money Services yesterday said that the Jampet (Spanish Town), Maxpay and GA Hamilton Total (Montego Bay), locations have been reopened with immediate effect.
Seven locations were closed last month in what was described as a precautionary measure aimed at protecting legitimate customers. At the time, Noel Greenland, senior vice-president for marketing and operations at GraceKennedy Money Services, said that the move is aimed at deterring criminals engaged in lotto scamming.
