    Tell me about Western Union Wire transfers

    I tried to look up how it works but I don't really have much of an idea. Can I go in and give them cash, a fake name, and will they send it? Can I do it online? Is it bad to use a credit card? I guess I'm lost here. I've heard you don't have to give them your ID when you do it. I'm just worried about the security of my funds. Can it be used as a type of stealth payment or so the government does not know who sent the money, but I guess thats kind of like money laundering isn't it?

    when u go in there...there is going to be like 4 different color slips...and one says us..one says mexico..the others say some other countries...ur most likely sending the order to mexico right? so u take that slip..use the name that u want on the package that is being sent to your house...make a FAKE name..and fill in all the info the guy gave u to put on the slip..u give the person that works at the westurn union department money and they send it to the adress...and no u dont have to give an ID..dont trip about anything other than if your source is legit and wont ripp u off.

    And over a grand DOES require ID, so break your order into two if it goes over

    WAY BETTER THAN CREDIT CARD!! when you use a CC you are just leaving a paper trail for LE to see..not that you are doing anything illegal with the transfer im just saying ;-)

    I'm going to asume that this is your first order becouse you have never used WU before, My advice to you is this... order their minimum at first to make sure everything is cool.

    No asking for sources, I would check and see if he received the money. If he did then you're an idiot for sending the second payment. BTW you're just asking to be scammed by someone. Not smart.

    this is strictly forbidden. there is absolutely no asking for sources on this board. you should edit this post. we know nothing of sources, we can only help you with info regarding the gear you find on your own

    It's a domestic one but thanks for the info, I didn't know how this went down. It sounds too easy to conceal the source of money these days..makes it alot easier. Ready to get started! & yes it is my first order, so I'm going to order the min. which is $500, but the guy has good references.

    Wasn't saying you wanted to be scammed, just putting it out there like that is asking for it though. Best of luck and I wouldn't answer any PM's you may get.

    Here in michigan the western union in several different locations will ask for a ID for all transfers, wheter its $200 or $999,
    They never used to but than all of a sudden they ask everytime and will not do the WU transfer without it. I asked her that it says on the sheet id required for $1000, and she said it always been the rule to ID everything.
    Good luck

    I've had that happen at certain locations, usually older people will ask because they give a shit about their minimum wage job. Look for a younger employee when doing it, usually not a problem.

    if your buddy takes wu, ask him if he takes money gram also, its usually cheaper. also, if you send over 1000, and they ask for id, then make sure you send it else where with another name so that there is no trace of international wire in your name, and an international package comin back in your name. could be sketchy.

    $500-$600

    So how much will sending $500 to $600 dollars cost me? Do they charge you a certain % or how does that work?

    Yea the surcharge on WU sucks. Always make sure you have at least a extra $20 on hand, but WU is the only way I go now.

    Never sent western union to somebody you don't know! Because you will get ripped off, that is the easiest way for someone to scam U. Especially on something like ebay. Know who your sending it to or expect to be ripped off.
