    They just want to confirm the transaction with you. They may even request to call you back at the phone number that you listed on the WU site. Nothing to worry about, however, it is better to do this in person at a WU location than online. More confidential.

    Ohh, brutha. I had this problem 1st time i used WE and they fuvked everything right up for me. They wanted me to confirm over the phone but then they stated there was a "security issue". They had already taken the money off my card so when i tried again, i couldnt as the funds were no longer there...

    If you do it in person would you need to show identification?

    give them your address or phone number?

    give them a name?


    how does this work?

    posted by Mbaraso onthecumup left the link its the bottom one.

    Maybe I can put some questions to rest...
    When your source request WU...DONOT use a creditcard! That's just plain stupid, and most sources (if their smart) will not allow you to use the credit card transaction online. They do this because big sources sometimes ship goods before they even pick the $ up. If you use a credit card to make the payment and the source ships you the goods...You, or your wife/gf etc can cancel the transaction w/ a click of a mouse..Bang...the source loses the funds and thats the end of that.
    So when your going to make a transaction...You go to your local WU...USE A FAKE NAME, fake address EXCEPT THE CITY AND STATE OF WHERE YOUR SENDING FUNDS FROM. Get the recipe.
    Go home and email the source w/ the name used on the transaction, the MCTN #, the city and state where funds were sent from, total amount sent, and the REAL shipping address of where you want your goods sent to.
    NEVER send more then $1000 at a time...This will require ID.
    Hope that helps.

    Using a fake name and address sounds good because you can deny everything if something goes wrong but the downside to using a fake name is if you get busted you not only face a possion charge but also mail fraud for the fake name. My advice is use your real name, once your order comes in don't open it (or very carefully open it to check that its all there) and write return to sender on the box, if the feds come to your house you just say I didn't order this and the box is already marked to be returned.
