Yes, and it's one of the money remittance commonly use around the world,especially Philippines. I have used once the Wester Union service over two years ago, and I find it that they really do the service very quickly and in just few minutes,once you successfully send the money, and they  input on their system, the person you have send it for ,they will get it right away.One of my friend using western union to send money to her family in the Philippines and they can get it right away, unlike when you send it bank to bank, it will take up 5 days before your family will received the money. They have website where you can create your account and validate it with legal documents and ID in order to use the system and you can send money using their website.It is for safety and security purposes.

Western Union is probably one of the oldest companies in our time. Western Union is an American financial service provider, as well as communication service provider. Western Union was founded in Rochester, New York, United states by Ezra Cornell in the year of 1851. It's original service provided was the exchange of telegram, and it continued in that line until the operation was shut down in 2006. Today, Western Union primarily engages in the services of money orders, wire transfers, money transfers and exchange, etc. Hence, if you're a frequent financial operator operating across borders, then it's likely you've heard about or used western union services.
Personally, i've used western union services severally and I haven't any cause to complain. Their services was fast, efficient and can be very reliable to meet any expectations. There's also good security revolving around transactions which means your money orders are completely safe. I think western union is a very good service and I recommend it to anyone looking to make transactions in the line of their services.

Western Union is great and a very fast way to send money. However, last year when I was visiting the US with my friend she had some money sent to her through WU. This was a pain to go and find an office that would allow us to take out the full amount of money. I do not have a bank account in the US so we ended up at some check change company which charges for their services. There are a lot of small offices in stores around the US but they would not give us the amount of money that she received we were sent to a check-cashing store in order to get the money. I found this hard to deal with and was not so happy to run from one store to another to get the money.

I have a really positive experience with Western Union. The past 5 years I study abroad, in Prague and I have to pay University fees as well as living expenses in a different currency. With western Union, I am certain that throughout this period I saved thousands of Euros compared to the bank in which the commission is high and the currency conversion is pretty bad. Western Union is a trustworthy company which people can certainly trust and save loads of money by using it.

Yes i have heard about western union, and it is the best solution when it comes to the option of sending money. I have used it for years and i have never regreted using it. It is readily available, and very convenient. I believe it is available in all countries if am not wrong. As you use western union you are assured that your money is safe and whoever your sending the money to, is assured of receiving the full amount without any deductions. Before this money is sent all fees and deductions are done, so there is no way that you will receive less money. I also like the fact that they have security features where they give you a question to answer from the sender, and they also ask you about the sender and where the money is coming from, if you fail any question you don't get your money, and i think that's a good thing. I would recommend it to anyone.
