No, Western Union does not want your profile info

Today's scam is a fake email from Western Union. I received three of these at different email addresses - none of which has a Western Union "profile." The links go to a phishing site that wants to steal your login and password, as well as other personal information.

The email says "Update your profile information," and then

Hereby we inform you that in accordance with our security policies and practices, your profile on Western Union needs to be updated. If you do not provide the relevant information, there will be a delay or we may be unable to operate your account. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about any aspect of this website, please contact Western Union Customer Service.

followed by links and then


The links do not go to Western Union's website. If you receive this message, delete it.
