      if you use your real name, all your transactions can be pulled up if it ever comes to that. Even though I don't do anything illegal, I just don't like anyone having the ability to pull up my records. Just tell the clerk you shouldn't need an ID to send wu unless it is a new policy that I am unaware of

      Maybe she was a new employee trying to follow directions. I've dealt with the WU in the same location for years and they've never asked me for I.D. But maybe that's just luck, despite the hot new hires that I've noticed at times. Find a WU near your house and only use them and no one else. If there are other services there like check cashing or money order sales, that might help. As long as they see your face, I.D. won't be asked.

      I have never been asked for ID from western union..

      However, every once in a while I get these suspicious ones who feel like they want to play "cop" and try to ask me questions.

      I have never been asked for Id before. I have been told that you cant waive ID and I was like wtf the reason Im sending money is because they lost their wallet and all its contents. Then they were good to go. If they ever try to get nosy I just tell them its for an ebay or craigslist transaction.

      I think it depends on the amount. If it's under a thousand dollars you don't need it, but you do if it's over. But I may be wrong. It's been a long long time.

      thanks for all the replys! Ill have to remember the ebay/craigslist answer. Sounds legit anyways. I may also try a different location like a money box or something. HEB was just closest to me. Thanks again guys!

      correct, best to split up if the amount is over 1k. Just send two separate transactions using different info.

      the thing you have to remember is that if your friend has trouble picking the $ up and you used a fake name, you might not be able to get your money back since WU requires an id for doing so. Don't send more than you are willing to lose is a good rule to live by because it does happen.

      Correct and good info, always split the transaction in two if over 1k. Anytime this was necessary I would always go to two different locations to do so. Necessary? Maybe not but I'd do it anyway so as not to raise any suspicion. And always use different info for both also as BB stated. And yes if anything happens, which usually can be straightened out with a phone call so long as you still have the slip,(always hold onto this until the funds are picked up) you could lose your money.

      Western unions rules seem to differ from location to location so be prepared for anything. Just because western union states their rules on the slips you fill out doesn't mean they are going to follow them. Each place can have their own rules and arguing with them can only raise more suspicion so the best thing to do when asked for id that isn't required is to politely tell them you left it at home and will be back asap. Of course you simply go to another location.
