I live in Montana and received a Western Union money order in the mail. i first went to a Wal Mart location to cash it and was told Wal Mart can't cash Western Union money orders.
I then went to safeway as this had a Western Union Branch inside. I was told that Werstern Union can not cash there own money orders that they sell. How is this possible? do they not have the ability to call there own business to verify the money order is valid?
or do they not have a money order cashing scanner to run it through to verify the money order is valid. If in fact this is the case as it is my question would be why sell money orders that your own business is unable to cash and what a disservice to the consumer talk about leaving a bad taste in my mouth for Western Union. Has this business not been around sense 1851 with all that time would you not think they could do business in a manner conducive to the general public. Well as I learned the answer is no.
I called to get a location to be able to cash the money order and was hung up on 3 different times.
Then after getting home I called around and was told a 50.00 dollar charge to cash a 200.00 money order. needless to say I wil no longer be doing any finacial business with Western Union
