    Came across a problem with them. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing it too.

    I think they are getting more strict about sending money. Or they blocked my ID for suspicion.

    Does anyone here use a non real ID to send money by WU? If so have you tried it recently and does it still work for you?

    yes. After you reach a certain amount of money in my country anyway they want information from the government. Since January I sent close to $85,000 from Canada to Brazil. After 10,000$ they blocked my ID and asked for information from Revenue canada. Their reasoning behind it is that WU was not to be used for business purposes. It is a short term solution to send money anywhere in the world.

    I gave them the information requested and the reasons why WU was the only applicable means of money transfer instead of a business account transfer via my bank and never had an issue since. It depends on your situation

    Edit: anything over 1500$ they ask for a photo ID. I use my real ID as my transfers are legitimate.

    Hmmm makes sense. Do you remember what error popped up when you tired sending it and your ID was blocked?

    I tried to send money today and it it said " ID format does not match issuer format". Called plenty of times trying to figure out wtf it means. No one seemed to know.
    I'm at about at 10-20 thousand on this ID. But i think mine is slightly different than yours. I think what they did was that since i've reached a high amount of money sent, they checked if the ID was legitimate or not with the vehicle administration and of course its not so they blocked me.

    I wonder if i get the guy to change the last number of the license number if it would go through. I really hope they don't start checking ID numbers with the vehicle administration for every transaction.

    By the way, my transactions are legitimate too, but with all the spying going on why draw attention to yourself. Especially by WU, i'm sure they monitor the transactions like crazy.

    If you need to send large sums of money you can hire associates to pick the money up and pay them commission.

    The only way around your ID getting blocked is to pay friends are family to send the money for you.

    You can also use other alternatives ways to send money other than Western Union.

    Like MoneyGram, Paypal, Bank Wire Transfer, Xoom, Payoneer, Skrill, and Liberty Reserve

    dont ever send money to any countries like puerto rico, san jose, costa rica because if you do they think you are doing illegal gambling with all of the online sport books they have and that will get you banned and black listed from wu faster than a fat lady falling down.

    Try sending a lot of cash anywhere in a short period of time and you'll be put on the watch list. The IRS $10K limit rule applies to Western Union.

    It's also incorrect information.

    Mass makes no difference to the rate of acceleration of a falling object.

    A fat lady would fall at the same speed as a thin lady.

    Western union is crazy. I sent 1800 through wu and 105000 through money gram. Mg was so much easier plus cheaper. wu is more designed for bbc.co emergency purposes
