With the help of Western Union and MoneyGram you can transfer money to relatives, friends and colleagues. Scammers picked up the cash immediately at other Western Union locations, even though the transfers were sent to made-up recipients and Western Union's policy is to always check for proper ID. 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. Western Union offers one of the easiest ways for families and friends to send money and stay connected almost anywhere in the world.
