    Is Western Union asking non-residents for a CDI now?

    I think it's a good idea to start a new thread about this as some members might miss posts about this in the super long "Western Union money transfer" thread and, as a result, not be able to pick up funds at a WU agency if they don't have a DNI and a CUIL/CUIT. This was posted yesterday: It...
