    Hi guys, I have a question.
    I am selling my FB page and got an offer for 650$.
    But the buyer wants to pay with WU and I always use PP.
    I never used WU in my life so my question is: is it safe to recieve the payment through WU and can I get scammed in anyway? While using Paypal you always have to worry about chargebacks, but what about WU?
    Thanks :)

    How would that be possible with WU? Is there any kind of chargeback like when using Paypal? If I undersand WU right.... You go get the payment in some WU store.

    For receiving money, WU is fine. (Unless the guy knows where you are going to collect it, and he mugs you outside)
    Just never send money that way, unless you know who you are dealing with and can physically track them down if anything goes wrong.

    I've never used western union but I do know for a fact that when I have gotten Nigerian scam mails,they always wanted to just give me a WU check.I even got 2 WU checks from one of the for $4000 on something I was selling for $197.And ofcourse they wanted me to keep a extra $200 for myself and send them a money order for the remaining $4000.I just liked fucking with them and must say they are pretty good at making fake WU checks.I burned that check to ash the day I got it.

    If you use WU make sure it's direct deposit and nothing else.If they want to send you a check,tell them to go to hell.

    If he's smart enough to scam a seller through western union then he is really and I do mean really good! You have nothing to worry about, if I had to choose between paypal and western union it'll definately be western union.
