Getting Dollars with Western Union

In theory, according to the company, if you go to the central ¨headquarters¨ one on Cordoba they are supposed to pay you in dollars.

In theory, if the transfer was initiated in dollars per Western Union policy they are supposed to pay you in dollars, but this obviously doesnt take into account the scarcity of the dollar or Argentina's strict dollar controls.

What sucks is that those that do change it into pesos, give you a horrible exchange rate for it!

Is it possible to do the reverse? Send pesos here via Western Union to the U.S and get dollars. If so, does anyone know if the exchange rate is near the "official rate"?

No, you can't send from here. But I thought you might be able to receive.
