Western Union telegrams were transmitted through a store and forward message switching system. Early versions were manual telegraph systems. Later systems using teleprinters were semi-automatic, using punched paper tape to receive, store, and retransmit messages. Plan 55-A, Western Union's last paper tape based switching system (1948 - 1976), was fully automatic, with automatic routing. In yet another variant of this scam, the buyer will provide a real Western Union Money Transfer Control Number (MCTN) to the seller, which can be checked on the Western Union website. However the buyer will not tell the seller who sent the money, thereby making it impossible to receive those funds. It's like showing someone a wad of dollar bills but not handing over the money. Western Union offers one of the easiest ways for families and friends to send money and stay connected almost anywhere in the world. The process is simple in that once the application form has been completed, Western Union will provide you with an instant quote for the cost of your fees in your local currency and this quotation is guaranteed for 72 hours. Once you agree to the offer, you will then be required to instruct your own bank (this can also be done via internet banking) to transfer funds in your local currency to Western Union.
