I've been receiving payment through Western union, more specifically, picking up cash from local agents. I use a citizens card which is a government issued photo ID (but let's just say I didn't get it issued by the government). Recently one of my payee's called up W.U to validate a transaction and the W.U employee stated that "the receiver has been receiving a lot of transfers recently, for this reason we will investigate and put this transaction under review." Now i understand that verifying the legitimacy of transactions is standard procedure at Western union, and that's fine, because all my transactions are legit, its not black money or anything shady, its just how my customers pay me because I despise paypal and it prevents chargback's. However, I am worried that if I have a large volume of payments coming in, for example $500 a day broken up into 2 or 3 payments by different people, this may result in Western Union reporting the activity to the UK government and therefore further checks being done on me. Usually I would be fine with these checks, however, as I said, the citizens card I use isn't exactly official.. I use a fake alias because I want privacy from my senders. So if the government, or western union were to do further checks, they would surely realise the I.D and alias are not valid, and this may land me in deep trouble? So my questions are: â–ª Is there a limit to how much one person can receive? â–ª Will western union do further checks or report this activity to the government? Thanks for any advice or guidance guys, I appreciate it.
