Default Western Union... Grrrrrrr...

I know it might be overboard, but I really needed to take care of something back home (I'm overseas) , and had no other choice but to use an online money transfer service... Western Union appeared to be the cheapest of course, so... The following is a response (a bit much, but it screwed me, after already having used their service with no problem) to an issue I had regarding their company. I had already tried calling their helpline, but at $2.50 a minute, and being on hold, my 7 dollar phone cards that last but a few minutes were killing me. AAaarrgghh... I kindly request an e-beer and someone else to argue with... Please someone tell me Obama is the best candidate to take my mind off of this.

(My reply to the email below)


WTF do you mean blocked? I am serving our great nation in the defense of our freedom and you block my card?? I have issues to deal with at home, such as paying bills and taking care of my family, but due to "validation criteria" I cannot support things I need to get done? What exactly is your validation criteria? Can you link me to the web page that spells it out for me? I will make every attempt to meet said criteria, until then, two thumbs down for western union... My debit/credit card company "USAA", a staunch supporter of the U.S. Military and those serving overseas has never given me grief over transactions from this side of the pond. Please respond, I would like some answers. If I do not receive a response, your message will be loud and clear... you do not support those who defend our nation... I apologize for being blunt, but so be it, I'm angry, and flying off at the mouth.



Bud Baylis, protecting my family and your future.

I just used Western Union last night for the first time and had to call from Saudi to answer a bunch of questions.

$51 to send $500 to my brother, pretty terrible rate. But they do something that nobody else does (instant transfer) so I had to suck it up and take it.

I am curious though, what freedoms are you defending?

I'm defending our freedom to keep terrorist MOTHERF*&^%$%^$%^kers from stepping on my grass and messing up my freshly mowed crab grass that I water twice daily and mow with a Honda Self-propelled mower using 93 Octane gas for that "optimum cut"... Oh don't get me started, history buff, war book buff, ready to defend your right to question the U.S. constitution with my own flesh and blood.

Wow, someone has a nice case of an undeserved sense of entitlement and a massive ego to go along with it!

O.o not if you use "Instant Transfer" sends the money instantly while they bite the bullet when it takes a couple days to get it from your bank...
