I had many session paid via Western Union till with no problems. I had a regular customer into money slavery using to send money via Western Union but he used to send 50 pounds in 15 minutes, so after two hours I had few MTCN codes from him, till one day when he contacted me desperate telling me that Western Union called him and asked him if he is blackmailed - he was eating dinner with his wife while Western called.
The situation was embarrassing for him so he went out in the garden to answer the question that Western asked him, he was very pissed not on me but on Western, so from back then we stopped using Western Union.
The transfer of the money is fast even is not on urgency status but I don't like to expose my customers like this or risk to loose them that way.
So be careful with them!
I dont use western union, because local bank always ask me too much details about amounts and who sent the Money to me. It is a safe method but unpractical.
Definitely is not a discreet payment provider. I had to give too much information on bank where I went to get my money and sign papers.
I didn't like it.
Shady shady shady! Beware of ANYONE ever wanting to wire money via Western Union. Chances are it's dirty money.
Western union, from experience, works but its not discreet. You have to give too much details to the client also, if you're like me living in a small town you get noticed going and cashing in a few times a day or week.
Very impressed with customer service and the service gets your money to you quickly and effieciently.
