    This is blatantly a scam. The only money that will ever be transferred is the receiver of this email sending money to the other person. Then they will be LONG GONE before you realize it.

    Yeah, this isn't a scam. Right, because everyone knows the corporate email for Western Union runs on hotmail.fr

    After multiple attempts at picking up the funds, Western Union was unable to complete the transaction. The recipient was at first told, "You need the Control Number." despite all Western Union signage indicating that it was only required for larger orders." The second time they could not "find" the funds when the control number was provided. Subsequent discussions with Western Union revealed that they had "locked" the transaction so that it couldn't be picked up. After a third unsuccessful attempt at pickup (which was because Western Union actually didn't "unlock" the funds until 2 weeks after they said they would), I said I am no longer interested in the service and I want them to mail me a check, which they said would arrive in 7-10 days. When no check had arrived within 3 weeks I called again, and they immediately said, "The transfer is available for pickup at its original location." to which I replied, "I was told a check would be mailed to me?" They then indicated their was no such record. I asked them to look at the history of the transaction, and the operator replied, "There is no history associated with this transaction." at which I expressed shock, "You have no record of the fact that I've called you three times about this transaction, nor the fact that someone told me a check would be sent?" I then asked to speak to the operators supervisor (I was put on hold, and refused the opportunity to speak to the supervisor). I dealt with operator 668 named Victor "We are not required to provide our last names." and he refused to provide his supervisor's name, but provided her number as 691. I then asked him what time is shift ended, because I would be calling back once his shift ended, and every day until my check arrives to check on the status. He said, "in that event please tell the operator that it is listed under 'Offline Requests'" and said that my "Reference Number" was the original Control Number. I will not be surprised if I call back tomorrow and am told, "We have no record of prior conversations related to this transaction."

    I run a small company and was needing to send a payment to a business partner in another state. I decided to use Western Union so the payment would be made the same day, and my products could be shipped faster. Huge mistake. I used the online payment method to send $999.99 (the most you can send using the internet option) which cost $1, 083.99 all together. Using my company debit card I finished the online processes, then received an email saying to call to finish the transaction. So I make the initial phone call, the lady tells me to go find a agent to complete the transaction. So I go to the agent, who has no idea what I'm talking about. (not his fault) And he calls using his agent line, to tell me the transaction was canceled because I have a private phone number and they cant verify my identity. Remember I'm with an authorized agent of theirs with my drivers license and and business information in hand. And if you type in my company's name and search, my name comes up as the owner with my street address and phone number. So no problem I decided to overnight my associate a check. Look online and Western Union charged my business account before declining the transfer. So the money's pending in my account and I do not have access to it. Multiple phone calls to both my bank and Western Union, I will not have access to MY BUSINESS FUNDS for three days. Best case scenario I can access my funds on Saturday, be able to place my order on Monday, and possibly receive my store merchandise on Wednesday. That's six days total, I'm going to lose well over $1, 000 on this one. And as a side note everyone I talked to at Western Union was very hard to understand. If anyone knows the owners personal number, please post it.

    Western Union cannot even handle a small $350 overseas. I tried to make a transaction online
    (MTCN 345 848 4329). Western Union took the money out of my Bank of America account but they never delivered it overseas to my daughter with a medical emergency? Where is the money? I think Western Union online is some sort of scam. They have my money and I guess I need to go to my bank and see if they can track these scammers down. I feel WESTERN UNION online is a rip off with zero customer concern.

    Western union is truly a joke. maybe once upon a time it was a legit way to send money but now it seem to me to be tailored specifically for scammers. unlike most banks and visa and paypal, western union does not have security measures in place to protect anyone from being scammed and from my talks with them after I was a victim of a scam, does not seem to give a hoot. they are a dinosaur of the fiance system and they do not keep up with the times. after I was scammed, I googled the name of the person that received the money and the email name and both were all over the internet and had been scamming people for some time. this should have been on some type of flagging system on western unions part to provide some kind of security for their customers if they really cared but they do not and it seems to me, they are a part of the scam problem so rampant today. western union is the easiest way for scam artist to take advantage of people. I will never use western union ever again and I am copy pasting this to every forum related to them I that I can find and will tell anyone never use western union. it's the same as throwing your paycheck down the toilet! western union... run by scammers for scammers. fu western union.. I hope you are happy with all the money you make from scammers all over the world. you truly cater to them. agin, I repeat for all reading this... never never use western union... ever!

    Never never use western union... ever! I got a check issued by wu, lost it the same day and reported the same day, they told me that they would stop the check and will re issued it in 45 days. after 45 days I called and was told that the check was cashed by somebody else, I requested an investigation, but nobody seemed to care, 2 month late nothing happened, they never bothered to call me back even so many time they promised that they would get back to me. I requested to have a copy of the cashed check, but every customer service stated that he/she can not release the information, I keeped calling and never got a person who can release the information. it seemed like that wu is truly some kind of joke, talking to somebody in wu is like talking to the air, nothing you can see, nothing you can feel and no where you can go. I really think that somebody inside cashed the check. now I begin to think that everybody inside wu is doing something like that. never never use western union... ever!
