    Western Union money transfer

    I've done it the same way every time, through the app with an account from the UK. Prior to maybe 2 months ago I was unable to initiate a transfer to a bank account, only to a cash pick-up. Since they've started to allow them, I haven't had any issues actually sending the money, only in the...

    Western Union money transfer

    A quick update for those having trouble sending to bank accounts, after two rejected transfers, a third that we sent on Monday the 18th went through today. I'm not sure if there's a reason or if it's dumb luck. It obviously took a little longer than the first ones, about the full six working...

    Western Union money transfer

    Yeah, it was really bizarre at the time and we couldn't make sense of it. It shook her up a bit too. To clarify the last bit, we were able to deposit straight to her bank account twice since this happened, so we haven't been in person to pick up money since. But there is now a problem with that...

    Western Union money transfer

    No, just walking on the way back home after getting the money. The post office is like two blocks from our apartment in Recoleta. She was stopped on the corner of Santa Fe and Pueyrredón and asked for her DNI and what she was doing.

    Western Union money transfer

    It was the first week of April, and no, we are in our twenties, she's an extranjero with a DNI. If it makes a difference. It was on the street after she'd picked up the money and deposited in the bank, she showed the guy the receipt but it didn't have a date on it. The guy kept asking for the...

    Western Union money transfer

    Anyone know if you need some type of permission form to be allowed to the Correo Argentino to pick up money from Western Union? Last time we did it, about a month ago, my wife had trouble with the police trying to explain what she was doing, while he was asking for her 'permiso'? Any ideas? Or...

    Is there a way to get USD in BA?

    I have limited experience but assuming the owner doesn't have a foreign bank account you can transfer into and given the quickly changing rate of the peso you're almost certainly personally better off sorting out a price in pesos. You can send to cash pick-up through Western Union, either to...

    Western Union money transfer

    I'm having the same problem with the first 2 transfers going through followed by the 3rd being rejected. Dispite WU saying it's the bank that's rejecting the money, the fact that several of us are having the same problem leads me to believe it's WU? Has anyone successfully completed a bank...

    How is it possible Argentina only has 2100 covid cases?

    You guys have to remember there is an element of luck in this. Not all countries are going to be affected equally, some places had the virus spread further before the response and some didn't. Colombia has done double the tests and has 600 more cases, Ecuador has done only marginally more tests...

    Western Union money transfer

    I just checked and it looks like they've updated to allow bank transfers from the UK so there's now an option on the android app for nationality etc. Just sent and will update when it's gone through, in case anyone else was having trouble sending from the UK!

    Western Union money transfer

    It's nothing to worry about - I've just used the code and as much of the last name as possible with AR on the end. So 'EB1234567 Smith AR' or 'SmithAR' with no space if there's not enough room. It's gone through every time. You definitely don't need the full name, I think the number and the...

    Western Union money transfer

    I've sent it several times to myself with no issues. But similarly have never managed to send to a bank account, it's an option on the app that doesn't go through, and isn't offered as an option on the website. The app works fine for me to send for cash pickup, only caveat is that I used the...
