I had a horrible experience with Western Union as well. I had a balloon payment due on my car and they held back two of the payments because they were the same...

although the deliverer/Publix confirmed that these were not duplicate payments. This has caused my credit score over 100 points that I have worked very hard to achieve.

They have blocked me from my account and do not send an email password to re-open although it’s on keychain. It’s just a big scam company!

Money order customer request

I have a total of $5500 in money orders that were returned to my deceased brother from homeland security. they are over a month old. the money orders were returned because the amount my brother sent for application for residency for his wife and child was too much. I now have the checks and need to return them to cash them out. I have the power of attorney and am the executor of his will. I have the Money Order Customer Request Forms. I need to now how do I proceed? what documentations do you want from me when I send the request form with the money orders.

User's recommendation: you will never be able to contact a costumer service rep by phone.

Lame *** company

I have a dear friend I was trying to help check into a hospital. She has ovarian cancer and very ill. she hasn't eaten in two weeks and looks like she was in a Nazi prison camp. Near death. western union refused to deliver my transfer because they said the are trying to protect me from scams. Now a day has been wasted and I have to find an alternative. they took my money in a few hours and say my refund will arrive in apx 7 business days..bs

User's recommendation: find another service.

Your "friends" medical issues are irrelevant. They said no so figure something else out. IF they did the transaction, and it was a scam, you'd be screaming at them.

Fraudsters Have All My Western Union Transfer Info

On 06/22/21, I was called from 202-998-**** claiming to be International Police that was investing a trend of money laundering by me to a county in Eastern Europe. They had all my information from my Western Union transfers from my name and phone number (which is now the Western Union Membership Number), the exact names of people that I sent money and their country of pick-up.

User's recommendation: Call Western Union Fraud Group then a News Outlet.
