It's not safe with that kind of situation. With Western Union once you send the money and the other party collects it there is no recourse in case of fraud. I used to work at an establishment that provided Western Union services and 90%, that's right, 90% of attempted transactions were fraudulent. We had to educate and send many people away. I would only use Western Union between someone I knew well or close family.

I would only use western union on people I know. What guarantee do you have that the other party will not collect the money and just leave? International jurisdiction is awful.

You don't need to give them a reply and you probably shouldn't be talking to them, they are probably criminals. I know in certain countries, especially among the Philippine people, Western Union is used regularly in certain situations for convenience reasons between close family members.

Of course, the people you are dealing with will strongly urge you to use Western Union because within one minute after you send the money they can receive it and you could never see it again. There is no recourse if you have been defrauded, and it happens often, especially if these people are in another country. If they are in the same country as you, they will often ask you to send money with a password so that they don't even need to show government identification to receive the money.

This is a very risky situation for you to be in, let it go, move on and don't become a victim.

We have accepted Western Union payments from time to time and never had a single issue with it. It's also pretty fast since the money is there instantly.

Western union payment methods are more secure as compared with any other payment services.

why does it more secure compare with other ways?
seems that the seller always benefits from it,but not the buyer.

Anyone asking to pay through western union is generally a scam. Once the money is gone there is no way to get it back and harder to trace. I have had a friend buy a car online. She sent money by western union and no car arrived.

Western Union is for those people who do not even have a bank account so they can receive money, cash at a grocery store. Or in case of emergency when you are stuck in a new location with no credit cards or money.

Western union is the faster way to send & receive money. But it should be used among the trusted person.

There are many other options to send and receive money, but if you don't have Paypal or any other account, Western Union can be very useful.

Fast, yes -- It's only safe, though, for the person receiving money.

Once you pay money to Western Union and they transfer that money to someone on the other end, you have no recourse in the event that you are being defrauded.

I refuse to do business at all with anyone who insists on a WU payment.

It's easy to receive payments. Easily get paid within a day. Rocking service. And this is the reason for liking Western Union.
