    Western Union

    They want me to call them.

    Did the thingy online and then they say I need to call and verify.

    What's up with that?

    I.m hoping someone has experience this. I've read that they may ask for a description and just want some advice. I thought that is what this board is for.

    They do this with first time users or if you're sending the money out of the country. They will ask you if you know the person that you are sending money to. Just tell them yea, and tha's it.

    they do it every time. it is just for verification. Dont worry about it.

    but in my experience it is cheaper to do it at the grocery store.

    I have no idea. Last wk i got a quote on the internet(from TX to china) and they wanted a $34 charge. i decided to pay cash and use the grocery store WU and it was only a $12 charge. have no idea why, but all i know is from now on i am going to the WU personally.

    vette is right............ they will do it every time, if you use their online service. you also should have gotten an email verification with all the info included about your transaction.
    after you call them they will send you another email saying funds have been cleared for pickup by the reciever.
    its common practice bro, dont sweat it.

    peace I4L

    For anything under $1000, you don't need id. Just make up a name, and send the money.

    Actually Moto, the last time I sent money to China it was less than $1000 and I had to show ID. They told me certain countries were being flagged.

    Of course I gave false info on the paperwork, but when I needed to pull out an ID, i said I left it at home. They refunded my money (a pain in the ass).


    I just sent money to Europe the other day and did NOT have to show ID.

    Yeah, it all depends on the idiot behind the counter. The other day i was asked to show ID, and i pointed to the bold print on the form saying you had to show id if it was over $1000.... But the idiot said that the computer still needed the ID. So, i said WTF, i went ahead and gave her my real ID (while having fake info on the form), and she did nothing.-well so i think.

    thats exactly what I would do.
    Look for the WU that you fill the form out...call on the phone they have provided...then u bring it to the counter to fill the rest of the order.
    Anyway...why would u order from China?? Not a smart idea...
