The complaint alleges that Western Union made materially false and misleading statements and/or omitted materially relevant facts regarding the Company's difficulties stemming from its Southwest Border Agreement (the "Agreement") with Arizona state; this agreement was meant to help stem illegal money laundering practices between the states along the U.S./Mexico border. It is alleged that Western Union failed to disclose that a) the Company was experiencing difficulties complying with its increased compliance duties as required by the Agreement; b) the Company was spending significantly more than forecasted on its efforts to satisfy the Agreement; c) the Company downplayed the impact that necessary changes were having on Company operations; and d) the Company was under competitive pricing pressure to charge a premium for its core money transfer product.
