My church group sponsors some people in Costa Rica. In the last 10 weeks we have had 11 members blacklisted from using the service.
Western Union keeps asking us what the money is for. We told them. We showed proof and then they asked if we are participating in online gambling. They couldn't fathom that we were just donating a few hundred bucks a week.
When we proved to them that we are just donating the money they then accused us of money laundering.
We will now have to go back to sending money orders. And risk them being stolen like they were a few years back.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
Monetary Loss: $240.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
