More than 22,000 people scammed after sending money through Western Union are being urged to claim compensation.
Action Fraud, part of City of London Police, is writing to tell UK victims they have until February 12 to apply for part of a £437million fund secured by U.S. regulators.
Anyone tricked into giving money to fraudsters via the international money transfer service between January 1, 2004, and January 19, 2017 can apply.
Scams included crooks on dating websites tricking lonely people into handing over cash, and begging emails that appear to come from relatives abroad.
Apply at actionfraud.police.uk or call 0300 123 2040. It is free to claim, so don't pay any firm offering to do it for you.
