I got banned and blocked from western union. Because they thought I was being scammed. I tried to tell them in no uncertain terms that i wasnt as it was my husband who I was sending money too. But they wouldn't have a bar of it. Anyway to get out if it. I had to send reciepts and receipts from the other end of who it was going to...I told them that was ridiculous tried and tried to explain to them my predicament... but they said the only way I could get unblocked was to do what they said I politely told them to f.....off

I have recently started seeing a girl from Thailand, and want to send her money, but she says she isn’t blocked and can’t receive, why would this be and how can I get her unblocked?

You can’t. Western Union will flag this as a romance scam, even if it’s legit. They have nothing to lose anyway, but they’ll block you from sending your money. They’ll take the money though, then hold on to it for at least 7 days before they return it to you after you nag them endlessly.

My sister works there at WU she says, Ghana, along with Nigeria and Zimbabwe are on a blacklist, and only so much money gets allowed to go in per Month.

Western Union ,as a worldwide concern, does 1000s of successful transfers every day? Problems do happen with the online service at times understandably, When these problems occur, WU are a nightmare. I am absolutely sure, they have nowhere near enough staff to follow through the number of complaints that they do get. After 3 years of successfully sending my filipina girlfriend a weekly allowance, from Auckland NZ, then going on holiday to the UK, and trying to send from there, they blocked the transfer and after many emails back and forth, banned me from either sending or receiving via their service. ( read that as disservice)
Absolutely pathetic. WU, You are disgusting.
