When I tried to get some information in WU Cusco were very unhelpful telling that I pick up the money so I have made a fraud investigation and police force WU to prove my signature and they lose because my signature was falsified.
But is not possible to get back the money because WU have staff of lawyer making my life unpleasant.
I made a money transfer for $1,400 from Los Angeles to New York and paid and extra $100 for an instant transfer. They said the money will be available in a minute and that the receiver can go to any nearby Western Union Store to pick up the money. My friend, who was leaving the country the following day, went to the nearest store and asked for the money. He was told that they don't have the money then they sent him to a different store. He went to the second store and the printer was broken so they could not deliver the money. Because my friend was leaving the country the following day he had other stuff to do so he couldn't do the the third location. I called Western Union and asked for a refund, but they said I am not eligible for one cause I should have called their 800 number before I went anywhere. I said how would I know what to do if you don't tell me and tried to explain that the friend had to organize himself for his trip. However, they said it was my fault. I called and asked to talk to a manager 7 times. All of the the supervisors told me leave us your phone number and will call you back. They never did.

WHY IS SUCH A BAD SERVICE SO EXPENSIVE? IT SEEMS LIKE THEY WANT TO KEEP YOU IGNORANT ABOUT HOW THEIR COMPANY WORKS SO THEY COULD TAKE YOU MONEY!! A FRIEND OF MINE HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH THEM ALSO. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND NOT TO DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY.
Western Union uses every trick in the book not make a payout on money that has been paid and supposed to be wore transferred. I will cut up my Gold Card and never use them again. They just plain are a pain to deal with. Add reply

I went to a local gas station to receive a Western Union for 75 dollars. The store clerks had to deal with 6 operators, each telling us something different is wrong. While I'm waiting, I had to explain to my 5 year he couldn't go to his dad's this weekend because we now don't have enough time to make it there, which was a 2 hour drive. We sat an 145 just waiting. I love holding my 5 year old while he sits and cries, not to mention I told a manager I am taking my business elsewhere and he said that was fine. It's sad because I receive money from there quite a bit. I won't be using Western Union any more and I don't recommend it to anyone else either. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 10/20/2012Add reply
