Using The Help System

February 26, 2018

Need to send (or get) money from somebody? Banks and apps aren’t the only options. Payment services like Western Union help you accomplish things that are impossible with your bank.

DO YOU NEED TO HAVE A BANK ACCOUNT TO SEND OR RECEIVE MONEY FROM ABROAD? No, neither Sender nor Receiver are required to have a bank account in order to use Western Unionservices. Instead, every money transfer is recorded in the system under a unique Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN).
