Ratings and Reviews
Worst thing for higher transactions
I have been doing transfers since 3 years from Western Union and never saw a problem and that's why I have an extra 2 stars, unfortunately I can't give 0 stars. And now I made a bigger transaction and that is when all the problems started. Everytime I call a new time frame is provided. Need to beg for my own money to be available in my destination bank account. Such a waste of time. All my commitments I made because of the initial time frame given are reflecting back on me with penalties. I would suggest people to use other platforms for bigger transactions. Such a great lesson for a customer who is reliable with them since 3 years.
Thanks for backing yourself Everytime with new timeframe. These guys are so intelligent, first they give destination county time zone for the money to be available, then they change to source country time zone, then they will give some random time in the morning, then some random time in the afternoon, again a random time in the night and now they ask me to wait for the end of the day. Didn't know I have to beg or make so many calls to ask for my money.
Thanks for teaching me a lesson.

NOT WORTH IT .
The first time I used it was no issue, I’ve send my mom money apparently she was blocked from the system I then proceeded to ask the lady from customer service if she was able to change the name of the receiver and she kept ignoring everything I said. I asked several times if it would be easier to just change the senders name like they usually do in store and she kept saying that they didn’t do that when in the app it clearly stated “call customer service “ to edit the name . I ended up getting a re-fund then proceeded to send my dad money none the less had another problem and called immediately just to get no answer it’s been the 14 time I call and have to go through all he options just to get to the point where it says “ hold in the line for a customer service representative “ and about 5 seconds later an operating talking another language pops up and the call is ended out of all 14 calls just one went through and had me waiting “a couple of minutes “ that turned into over a 30 minute wait just for them to never pick up . I then emailed them with the problem but said I would be contact within 24 hrs ! Are you serious ? But yet nothing ... I’ve called 3 different numbers of there so claimed 24& 24/7 hr customer service wich is a total bs . & here I am struggling just because apparently it would be cheaper and more convenient when u still end up paying more less the same thing .

Thank you for reaching out to us and we are so sorry for the inconvenience caused. Please allow us to help you by contacting us through the following channels:
After multiple attempts to send money this app has not been successful even once. On the first two attempts WU indicated they needed more information, which was provided. The questions were intrusive but they were answered. E.g. How long have you known the recipient? Over a decade...but whether it is one day or a decade, it is not the business of Western Union. Despite providing answers to Western Union questions the transactions were cancelled by Western Union, and they refused to provide an explanation. The next transaction Western Union claims was stopped by the bank because there was an extra 0 in front of the account number. If there was a zero it did not come from the sender. Upon inquiry the bank referred recipient to WU. The next attempt was stopped by WU with a statement that additional information was needed from sender, and they were not able to contact senders cell phone. Sender’s phone did not show a call from WU and no voicemail was left. There appears to be no interest by WU in resolving this. Two customers known to each other for over a decade are totally unable to exchange a nominal amount of money between their two bank accounts using this App. From my perspective this App rates a total FAIL. I am at a loss to know how anyone is able to get satisfactory results from this App.
