ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A North Georgia man wired $200,000 to foreign scammers. His wife learned about the Western Union settlement from a Better Call Harry report. Harry visited the couple as they try to get some of their money back.

If you lost money to a scammer by wiring it through Western Union, you have more time to file a claim. The deadline has been extended to  May 31, 2018. As part of a settlement with the FTC, Western Union agreed to return $586 million to scam victims.

The settlement covers people who were defrauded between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017.
