More about Western Union service

The Western Union Company is an American multinational financial services company, headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Founded in 1851 as the New York and Mississippi Valley Printing Telegraph Company in Rochester, New York, the company changed its name to the Western Union Telegraph Company in 1856 after merging with a competitor. The company dominated the American telegraphy industry from the 1860s to the 1980s, pioneering technology such as telex and developing a range of telegraph-related services in addition to its core business of transmitting and delivering telegram messages. After experiencing financial difficulties, Western Union began to move its business away from communications in the 1980s and increasingly focused on its money transfer services. The company ceased its communications operations completely in 2006 and is now the second largest money transfer provider in the world.

@WesternUnion your website is down at the moment. Makes people question the reliability AND security of your services.

@GKMSOnline @dgwehby Good morning and thank you but there’s no need, your website is down, mobile app is down and the transaction can only be processed in branch with cash only. That’s unacceptable and puts @WesternUnion customers at risk especially in Jamaica. Card machine NEEDED in branch.

@aneikaangus on 2022-11-01 13:56:36+00
To add insult to injury @dgwehby, your subsidiary isn’t even giving customers the pleasure of an alternative as the apps aren’t working and your website is down. So it’s either in person or enduring excessive wait times to customer care. @WesternUnion customers deserve better.
