OK ..Fifty Fifty.. Good

Money stucks in every third time. When you complain they refund it after 3 days where you loose the present rate. Got problem now a days every-time. Now decided to stop using Western Union.

But they don't cheat, refund or resend it. Always got problem when they advertise a higher rate. but rate is Lucrative sometimes. Sometimes it transfers in seconds and sometimes takes hours and sometime a week. Very unpredictable and time consuming. I wait for one hour to contact their compliance team after five days.

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.

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.
