    I sent funds yesterday thru Western Union and paid a small fee. They are currently on high alert looking for fraud. It took 2 days and over an hour on the phone to get my small transfer approved.....it is not like I was sending $1,000,000 LOL!

    They questioned if I knew the person....how long have I know the person...have I ever transferred $$ to this person...what are the funds to be used for....

    I work in a bank, so I understand the security efforts, but holy cow! I have consistently send $$ to this person and I always send $$ for school uniforms.

    No cost to "set it up", but around j$3000 to receive it.... wire transfer not the cheapest way...

    We send money via Moneygram. Set up an account & send from your computer or phone. Money is available immediately. You need recipients full name & address, as it is on their id. Recipient will need senders name, address, & reference number to pickup funds.

    My husband sent money via Western Union a while ago and will again this week. They didn't want to give our friend the money because of some minor technicality with the names and he had to call my husband from the Western Union office but it got straightened out fairly quickly. A little bit of a hassle and a small fee but well worth it.
