    Western Union, whatcha think

    This is for everyone who has used WU
    I have use WU many time to transfer money, as you may all do. I have had all international sources in the past and It usually cost from 30-60$ to send money, which I thought was high but b/c it was going over seas there was nothing I could do about it..I have recently come in contact with some domestic sources and used WU to send money, and I found out that it was the same amount..If I remember I sent like 300$ and it cost around 30$ to send. I was pissed..this was outrageous. thats like 10% of the total cost. So I sent a letter to WU and explained my concerns about high cost. (of cource I didnt ad that I was using WU for AS, and that with the high cost of AS I am just trying to save a buck). They just send back to me today..they said that they would review the cost issue at there next meeting.
    Hopefully cost will come down if enough people complain
    I was just wondering what everyone else though of WU,

    Thanks

    I would rather pay for WU than use my bank acct. Plus you get an email now when the reciever picks up the transfer, taking the guesswork out of timing your package.

    Scott is on the money and captured my anger too...

    WU sucks ass and charges way to much for their transfers...

    More sources should accept evocash as a way of payment and
    start putting a hurting on WU those cocksuckers...

    Screw WU.
    Use Money Gram...you can spend $80 to send it across the Country, or $15 to send it to ANOTHER Country!
    Your Call.

    Yeah WU likes to give it to you dry when you send cash.

    About the "review it next meeting" comment from WU, no doubt they will say look at this then file in the "F-U" pile.

    Well saying that is what AS is all about is not the smartest thing to say. I know you were joking but thats what gives it a bad rap!
