Re: [tips_and_tricks] Western Union
I want to thank you and the others who have responded. The WU workers in the fraud department clearly have scripts in front of them and they attempted to generalize my behavior as "wanting to blame any one", which is far from the case. I know that getting hot-headed doesn't resolve any thing and it makes you over look little details that you should probably be writing down. I will take into account what every one has recommended and try to go from there.
We'll see what happens....

Its a whole lot cheaper and pretty reliable. I would confront Western Union. Then turn the matter over to the State Attorney General in your state and the state where Western Union is headquartered. Then send a copy of the same complaint to the Federal Trade Commission. Be sure to let Western Union know where you intend to send the letters. FTC is a little slow sometimes in coming. My cousin filed a complaint a couple of years ago and low and behold he got all of his money back. It tooka couple of years. Better late than never. Hope this helps. Rich
