Western Union invades your privacy with all kinds of infuriating personal questions about the nature of the business transaction that you are trying to complete with the wire transfer.
Wasted over an hour trying to wrap up some urgent business, only to have my transfer declined for failing to answer their vry personal questions to their satisfaction. They asked "what is the money for?". I said, "a business transaction." They said, "what kind of buisness specifically". I said, "That's my business not your."
To make a very long and infuriating story short, it took over an hour to give them my money, answer their *** questions, and then to get my money back.
I went to MoneyGram, and closed the deal in less than ten minutes, no problems.
My advice: Avoid Western Union at all costs!
