OK, Long story short.

I've got a WU online account, live in the U.K.

Need to send money to people online, but they require my identity to be verified:

In order to have your account approved we require a copy of a valid form of ID (passport, national ID
or driving license) together with any invoice (e.g. utility bill, bank statement, telephone bill)
that is showing your name and address.

Well, i'm under 18, so i shouldn't even have a WU account. What should i do to get verified? I can give the bills,etc.

But the passport or form of ID will have my date of birth on it :confused:

Any way to get verified?

Thanks.

Usually Western Union doesn't require I.D. for amounts sent for less than $1k. At least its that way here where I live in OHio.
If the clerk looks at you funny, and your sending to a 3rd world country....I usually just get a ticked off look on my face and say "If they would have told me that marrying a woman from "country of choice" that it meant I would be supporting her freaking mother the rest of my life I wouldnt have married her !!

That usually gets a laugh or 2, and clears up any suspicion they may have on why I am sending money to "country"

haha,

Peace,

RD

Don't ask why.

Nothing wrong with getting a parent or legal guardian to setup an account with you as the beneficiary. Then you can send and receive all you want.

OPTING OUT of this conversation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor is creepy to say the least.

Mods, do you allow minors on the board, he clearly is stating that he is ?

Peace,

ROFL, There is no age limit here, there's 13 year olds on this forum, wtf are you talking about.

BTW, Just because i'm 16 doesn't make me "stupid" or a "noob".

Believe me, i don't want you to think i'm boasting,etc so i'll just leave it.

Thanks!

Thanks for the advice Oxon, but I need to send regular payments of large amounts, so I can't keep going with my mum/dad to the agent and keep sending money.

Online is much more quicker and efficient.

Guess i'll have to wait until im 18 then :(

.

Start a bank account in their name and make regular deposits to their account. Then they can transfer their money to their other account. :D
