My father is in Mexico and although I have successfully send money to him before though Western Union. They can not explain why he is having trouble receiving the money.
When he goes to pick up the money he is told that the tracking number is valid, but he can not retrieve the money. I have called Western Union several times but I only get the same answer "the money is available for pick up, he just needs to go to a W.U and pick up". This is *** and I am never using this company again as they have cost me my weekend and my father has had a miserable time trying to get the money.
I say find a reputable company before you are put in the situation I am in.
Product or Service Mentioned: Western Union Money Transfer.
Monetary Loss: $300.
