Thread: Money Transfer
01-05-2004, 10:42 PM #1
okay usually when putting out orders i use a fake name at Western Union and just make my money transfers less than
$1000 dollars so they do not need ID now today i went to go put out a transfer which was less than $1000 and they id'd me. NOW i did not end up putting out the money but i have a question for you guys:
A) is it a bad idea to have my real name attached to the transfer even if the money isnt getting directly sent to my source (not sure how it works)
B) should i use money gram and just send out money using them for under 800 dollars (since they dont id for transfers under 800$)-however money gram costs more for me in my area
C) should i just go to Western Union and send my total amount of money and just give them my id anyway???
I NEED YOUR OPINIONS ASAP

I personally wouldn't use my real name. Too much of a paper trail.
And after my friend getting popped today I'm certainly staying away from anything oversea's.

find a reputable source you trust, and who trusts you.

I wouldn't worry about the name if it's not going straight to the guy nor being sent to you. EVen if they came for you nothing would have been delivered to you, and if you want to send money overseas you don't need to justify that to anyone.

You don't need to show ID for under $1000. Go to another agent who actually knows what they are doing and use a fake name.
