The Western Union website has been hacked and credit card number were compromised. Right now the western union website simply states
Quote:

We apologize for any inconvenience

This is pretty big news and really emphasizes the importance of online security. More info is available at http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/ap/2000...hackers_1.html. If you recently made an online transaction at western union you probably want to cancel your credit card.
