I was out of town and needed to have a cash deposit wired to my personal checking account. I used Western Union because of their fast service: NOT!
I called my bank all day and they never received the wire. I went back to the Sweet Bay supermarket where I purchased the service and they called Western Union. THE WESTERN UNION REP SAID IT TAKES THREE BUSINESS DAYS FOR THEM TO DO A DIRECT TO BANK TRANSFER. IT COST $18.00 FOR ME TO WIRE IT.
I COULD HAVE OVERNIGHTED THE MONEY TO THE BANK FOR MUCH LESS. I COULD HAVE SENT A LETTER TO THE BANK FOR THE PRICE OF A STAMP. WORSE, WESTERN UNION REFUSED TO REVERSE OR CANCEL THE TRANSACTION OR EVEN REFUND THE PRICE OF THE NON-SERVICE! IF THE CLERK AT SWEET BAY WOULD HAVE TOLD ME IT WOULD TAKE THREE DAYS TO GET DEPOSITED INTO MY ACCOUNT I WOULD HAVE NEVER ON MY WORST DAY DECIDED TO USE THIS LOUSY SERVICE.
THIS IS A RIP-OFF! I WILL NOT USE WESTERN UNION OR SWEET BAY SUPERMARKETS AGAIN
