How long can western union block me from sending money?
I dont know how long they can block you from sending money, probably as long as they want. I would not use them ever again send your money some other way that way it will stay safe.
Is there legal recourse in Australia for refusing to provide a service without a specific reason?
I dont know about the legal side but I know that a service can be refused by the provider without any reason, meaning you need to seek alternate options. Saying that, I dont believe any business wants to turnaround their customers by doing that
Thanks. I’ve tried different Government Authorities but they don’t seem to have to want much of a say in how WU operates.
WhyWestern Union block me in Belgium branch.
I can't pick up money anymore.
And what should I do that Western Union will unblocked me.
Please help me?
Use XE money transfer or another service, you have read the reviews. so why would you even think about using these PARASITES? They do not deserve your business.
Why is it that sending money to friends from Australia to Dominican Republic of around 700USD is flagged for phone interview, then ultimately cancelled by the money sender service. They can't even tell you the reason so there is no idea why it couldn't go through. Is the problem on the sender side or the receiver side?
They cancel because, telling by way the rude obstructive useless illiterate embiciles that work there, is that their whole disgusting attitude is probably motivated by jealously that you have money and they do not. Do not do business with companies that do not have a direct email to management or a phone number to contact. Look at all these negative reviews and not one response from Western Union. That tells me they don't give a Rats TOO TOO about the grief and inconvenience they cause people. They are obviously an impersonal organization without any empathy at all, who only cares about themselves. After the last experience I had, I will never ever use these blood suckers again, AVOID AVOID there are many services now meaning you can use a Bank as they are competing with those services, so the rates are not too bad. Or use another service.
What does mean transaction exceed allowed limit cod (c8618)?
No. Rang WU again and found out that it was a business account I was withdrawing money from. They don’t like that ! I don’t have a business now. I transferred the money using ANZ online.
I had similiar issue with them previously even using a personal account. I believed it was due to the amount (exceeding A$1k, For smaller amount (less than A$2000, there is no problem and every fast.
There is a floor limit, I don't know how much that is. Just like ATM card. Cannot withdraw as much as you want in the ATM machine dependent on the account. If still don't understand, speak to the bank about daily limit on ATM card.
