It may be my own fault for continuing with the nonsense but... This is about the 7th time Western Union has screwed us (the business).
Repeatedly we send money to get "quickly" to our techs when in need. Hefty amounts are sent and the hefty 10% is withdrawn from every transaction. But countless times we will send money online or at a Western Union location and it gives us a confirmation number so the receiver should have money "in minutes". Well this doesn't happen.
Then you call to check on it and they say they have a minimum 2 hour wait before they can help you. By that time the money is canceled and doesn't go straight back into your account. So both ends are f#@*$. This happens REPEATEDLY not just every once in a while!
HORRIBLE WAY TO DO BUSINESS!! I advise another way of sending money.
