    This is the email i just received.

    So if you are not a neteller, firepay user and live in the USA, get your eco card. Good thing i have an account there just never used it as at the time funding it via moneygram or western union was not an option now it is.

    well

    Western Union is not the only option available.

    I have never understand why people like it so much... Is expensive and if you make a mistake on your transfer you are ready for a nightmare re routing.

    I like 32red's attitude. Is true, providing western union is not good image for US customers, eventhough is widely used.

    I believe that while your cs staff is able to sale the instacash idea and your company reimburses the fee, this deposit method is incredible.

    For the UK moneybookers should create their own instacash service

    I wonder a) why they dropped it and b) like Prepaid ATM, is this going to circulate round other places? Ecocard or Entropay for "you ess eh" bods then I guess

    Western Union

    Where I live the only people who use Western Union are the day laborers who don't have checking accounts, some who are sending money out of the country. I use Neteller, available to all USA residents, and it works just fine, so long as you realize that from time to time you can't log in first thing on Mondays.

    I think it is more Western Union noyt wanting to be associated with the online gambling than anything else. When we had "Western Union" listed as a banking option we would get a legal letter requesting the removal of their name, or face legal penalties. We removed their name but from time to time when we would run a promotion and would use the term Western Union, we would get the letter again a few days later.

    Western Union

    If you see WUs website is states several times: DO NOT USE WESTERN UNION TO FUND GAMBLING OR TERRORIST GROUPS, something like that

    Here is the thing, of course w/u wants to be happy with the US goverment... so they need to avoid people using WU to fund gambling. However.. think about it... if you have $500.000 a day being transfered throug western union (without counting payouts to customers) don you think they are angry for the business the industry is generating them???

    The other thing is that they are not on top of the transfers all day, however if you have a Pedro Juarez Garcia in Colombia, receiving $15.000 is obvious they will not allow this to happen.

    Another thing is having one guy in Washington DC sending 6 transactions of $500 a day to the same country... daaaaaahhhhh is obvious that he is not feeding an indina southamerican family... HE IS WAGERING!!! So this type of things W/U doesn't like... I believe their policiy is... OK.. WE'LL DO IT, JUST DON'T MAKE IT THAT OBVIOUS YOU MORONS...jejeje

    In hot seat with Western Union Letter Today 5-27-06

    Just to let all of you know that I have just today received a letter from Western Union demanding that I comply with the emails that they have been sending me. It seems that I played a site so much in the past 6 months and have sent maybe more that 15,000.00 USD to them and or a agent. I have never cashed or won at the site but now I am as of this day being question about my transactions. This was done via email from Western Union asking me to name the people that I was sending to. They have a new form now and its really on the watch list. I have so many emails from them and have shared it with the site, and also several phone calls. Now I am not sure what to do with this letter. They have asked several times that I sign a Affidavit so that they can investigate to whom I was sending the money. I know they now to whom I was sending it to, but they needed me to sign so that they could close the office I guess and also try and get the 3rd party that was receiving the money, from a agent and it was not being sent to the site. They had a arragement with many peoples names and from time to time and may I add that these people were blocked from receiving the money. To that end I have also been blocked from sending to that Country. This has cost me many dollars in fees and now it seems that I am going to have to deal with it. In one email Western Union stated that maybe and I say maybe " Money Laundering" which I am not really sure how one would define this. I will tell all that I was shocked today to get this letter here in the Philippines where I have a home as well as the states. So beware all and I guess I need to discuss this matter with the site. Also I guess it's worth copy and pasting this which I went to Western Union Site and it is on there just like this.:eek:

    The maximum send amount for a money transfer is $2,999.99 per 30 days.


    Western Union strictly prohibits the use of its Internet service to directly or indirectly fund illegal Internet gambling and/or illegal activities.

    So beware all !!!
