I had a prepaid Matercard, loaded it with funds, then Western Union put a hold on my account. They refused to release my card until i sent them a bunch of personal informatiin via FAX machine!
When i refused, they refused to release my money....the key here is MY MONEY!
No one there could tell me why my funds were on hold, and they would not even allow me to close my account! The request was for a photo copy of my drivers license, a copy of a check, and a utility bill. No one intheir right mind would send such personal information to a fax machine.
So i asked them what are they going to do? Just keep my money...that is just what they did...held me hostage to their demands.
