    Well AdWorkMedia tried to send me around $4k with Western Union like 2-3 times, and they replied yesterday saying that they can't send to my name for some reason, they told me i was probably added to blocked or fraud list or something. I went to the western union place here today to ask what happened, they told me they will tell me what happened if i go there tomorrow at 11 PM. I don't know what to do, i hope cops won't show up when im there at 11 lol, and why they won't send it to my name?

    yes they add even sender to fraud list sometime. there is blockage period.
    on the cops question; they call to central WU location and will ask them problem detail.
    Did you get WU more than 12times a year. there is a limit on transactions you can do in a year.
    Better do below $1000 in parts.

    if you didn't do anything illegal your safe. anyway why don't you ask them " why do I need to go here tommorow at 11 PM when you can tell it now."

    or probably its really a big money for a western union branch , where country you are from ?

    Don't worry about the cops, etc. Go there tomorrow at the fixed time and I hope everything will be ok. If the cops have to come in, they can find your home as easily. So face it bravely and relax. Just keep a good reason handy if needed... :)

    And as Aaric said, you can have WU payment 12 times per annum. Of course the party paying you there will be keeping accounts, so you too should have accounts of your income. Again, a good accountant (CA as we call them here in India) will easily help you on that issue.

    I once had to get some WU payment. I was told to come day after... I asked why, they told me that they had closed their account books for the day, and so they couldn't give me the cash although it was available. Simple valid reason... I got the money the next day.

    You are probably flagged due to the amount you are receiving. I ran into the same problem. I sent a business partner high 5 figures multiple times and they flagged both our names and they started asking weird questions which was none of their business. Was specifically told that WU is not to be used for "business purposes".

    After a bunch of arguing with them I just use my local bank to transfer to his bank and it is much cheaper. 30$ flat fee for anything less than 20k. I just send 19k each shot.

    This maybe due to the amount you are sending or maybe due to laws applied in your country for foreign exchange.In my country you can only receive amount for like 5 times a year.
