    Western Union

    Anyone ever had WU kick a transaction when buying gear? Happened to me today, something about business does not meet requirements, very vague, but my CC was authorized. Wonder if supplier got flagged?

    Well I did'nt even know you could use a cc. I thought it always had to be cash. You don't even have to use your real name unless it's over a grand.

    using the CC through WU is trackable?

    sometimes if the supplier reaches a certain amount of money WU may cut them off for a while. Talk to him and see if he has a different name you can use

    Hopefully you aren't trying to WU your money to an eastern european country that starts with M, because that would be an awful waste of money.

    Only if itís over $1000. If I was sending more then $1000 I would split it into 2 different transactions. Thatís just what I would do but I donít do anything illegal

    wow . . . I hate to hear that! Hey when you're desperate you'll try anything. It wasn't much and I'd sent $ that way before and it was all good. I just had a bad feeling this time, but I should know for sure in the next few days .

    It doesnt matter that you dont have to id if its under $1000.....you used your CC and that is traceable.......Always use cash for transactions such as this......very hard to trace.......even harder to prove......

    Here's different, you have to give them your ID even if you have to send 100 bucks, what a bitch...

    if you are doing a transactions with a CC with WU they ALWAYS kick back the transaction - ive noticed this myself .. I just go in person - and I always use my real information - in case there is a problem...you CAN NOT get the money back without showing proper ID ..
    not worth losing 2 grand to me ...ive never had a problem and have had things sent to my work for the past 6 months ... small packages ..
    just go in person ... your bank should kick the money back to the card quick ..mine did .. I even buy clothes and sneakers and such from china and they will not let you do CC thru WU .. same reason .. I use moneygram for that ... it is easy and alway go thru - but I wil lsay this my back calls me EVERYTIME i us money gram to make sure its a legit transaction .. im sure there is a lot of fraud going on with these places ..
    good luck bro

    not everyone accepts bank transfers - also ...for people wanting to be discreet you cant do that with a bank account .. usually need 2 forms of id - social security card etc - especially now with the patriot act - they ask you shit loads of questions
