Good luck cancelling your transaction after they put it on hold. Took me 5 interactions with support to got it cancelled. Apparently they sent it to additional review to their security team and it is stuck in limbo there unless you give them Photo ID of the receiver (cmon, you can’t be serious). And still for cancelling the transfer they are asking for a formal email with receiver’s information (even though they are talking to you on the phone and even though you are explaining them that you cannot provide it just because you don’t know the receiver's passport data) with the EXPLANATION and details of why you are cancelling. Will never use them again, their competitor platforms are so much better and faster

I live in California and have been sending money to missionary friends around the globe for four years. Western Union makes $4.99 every time I send money and we have had a decent relationship. Occasionally there is a glitch and I have had to go the old fashioned way and use the local Walgreens. Recently they wouldn't transfer funds for me and requested that I email their Global Consumer Reinstatements department, which has no physical address or phone number and no accountability. That department asked me for information, which I provided. Everything except an ID number, which as I explained, "what ID number?" because I had given them myWU number, what other ID number is there? The response I got was: "We regret to inform you that according to our internal policy and local regulations, we cannot disclose any specific details why your service has been discontinued." From Diego Op457. There other options, so it's not the end of the world, but what a bad business! After four years of service, they cut me off without explanation. Don't use them.

The most despicable company EVER! Thankfully there is Karma. Was a victim of a kidnapping scheme. These heartless vindictive apathetic customer service reps...as well as their 'fraud promotion department' are the most heinous and evil escalators of terrorism I know of. Why the US Attorney General hasn't investigated them is very suspicious! They don't even investigate or involve law enforcement. American citizens especially the elderly fall prey to this company every day and they turn their backs and laugh. I sincerely hope during the holiday season they experience the same as they do onto us. Hearing your child scream in the background, personal private information disclosed, and in the end being told you are an old fool. This company has created a pipeline for kidnapping ransom money...can only imagine how they support the cartel drug money.

western union has the worst customer service. I called to complain about the too long waiting period for my money to be delivered the person that picks up the call has zero manners. When I said, I am afraid their service is unreliable and the next thing he said is, it's my choice to use western Union. This statement gets me upset.

I am waiting for the money to get delivered for past 8 days! Worst part is the western union website says transfer complete!!! I checked my bank account and verified that no money was sent and got in touch with customer care. This is not acceptable!!!!

Money never gets delivered. Every day customer service has a new story to tell. Still did not get money. Scammers.

Western Union refused to let me send money to a friend in Lagos Nigeria who was dying from Malaria. They asked how I knew him and I let them know he and I did ministry together from our church. THEY REFUSED AND SAID IT WAS AN INTERNET SCAM! I TOLD HIM INTERNET SCAMS TAKE PLACE BY INTERNET. NOT SOMEBODY I DO MINISTRY WORK WITH. HE ACTUALLY LAUGHED AT ME AND SAID CHURCH IS A SCAM AND PERMANENTLY BLOCKED ME FROM USING WESTERN UNION OR MONEY GRAM! I had to contact a scammer in Nigeria to find another way to send money and sending 250 cost me 700 because of that idiot! I tell everyone I know what apps to use to send money now so to avoid Western Union.
