    Help Please Need Feedback

    You can apparently use moneygram online now. Would anyone ever do this or just go in store and use cash?

    Online means credit card with your name on it connected to cash sent. In store can be cash without any real connection to you.

    Either way I wouldnt worry much about it. If you are really scared to use a credit card online, get a prepaid card

    Western Union (not sure about Moneygram) makes you show an ID when sending $ anyhow so your name is on the paperwork...and you are on video the whole time. Soo you could get a fake ID and wear a ski mask while going into WU or.......just stop worrying so much

    I have never shown my ID for western union. I simply fill out the form found in a grocery store then take it to the counter. They ask me if thats the name i want to send under and if i want it in US dollars or not. THen they give me a total, I hand them cash, get a receipt and leave

    The one we have here is by iteself. Man they got cameras everywhere and need an ID. But maybe thats just for the over seas payment. Only did it once before getting the local hook up!
