Loving this app in these times.

I like the app I don’t care too much for the service.

I find it funny that you can send someone money three times in one month but it does not factor in the dollar amounts.

For example:

if I want to send someone $5000 today tomorrow and the next day that is considered three times so the person has gotten $15,000 from me.

that’s a lot of money for some people now if I send somebody a dollar today and a dollar the next day and a dollar the next day that’s only $3 dollars.

it limits you by how many times you send a month but not by dollar amount. that is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. The reason why I say this is the dumbest thing? they say it is to stop money laundering money”!

laundering should be by dollar amounts not by how many times you have sent. Clearly a dollar today a dollar tomorrow and a dollar the next day is not even laundering that is by far, so far from ever hurting an economy.

Even $100 today $100 tomorrow and 100 and the next day that is not laundering. If anything that is trifling if someone made that low of money dealing and wanted to launder $300 and its not even worth their while.

But whatever. Who am I?

So I say all of that to say,.... during these time of covid and world issues people need help. So I send what I can when I can and on the fourth time, my friend in Another country was turned away. You can one get money three time a month.

Great App though

This is by far the worst experience I have ever had trying to send money… I tried to send $500 to my sister because she needed money for school clothes and supplies for my three nieces. I put all my information in and hit confirm to send. I then got a message saying I needed to verify some things, so I added my drivers license and everything they needed. I got a message saying “your transfer is under review this usually takes 30 minutes blah blah blah” a whole day goes by and it still said the same thing. It wouldn’t even let me try to send another one unless I canceled the first one!! Ok my sister really needs the money at this point so I cancel and try again. I GET THE SAME MESSAGE about the 30 min crap. I’m worried if I cancel it again and try to send a new transfer that i might mess something up. Another day goes by and nothing. I finally just went ahead and used a different platform but this is absolutely ridiculous!! The sole purpose of this app is to be able to transfer money so I’m really just confused and highly upset that I wasn’t able to and not only that there was no clear reason as to why it was happening I never got an email or anything. A complete waist of time and my sister had to wait almost a week and go buy school supplies the night before the first day of school because of this. I Will NEVER use WU again ever! Deleted the app and not looking back! ✌🏼

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 .
