Western Union Money Order Western Union Money Order 2+ months to pay off money order Bridgeton Missouri – I excepted a money order as payment for work rendered on a pc job. I deposited the money order to have it bounce. I called western union to inquire. They said it had depreciated. The $300.00 dollar money order was now worth $293.50. That I would need to file paper work that they would mail to me in the next 3 to 5 days business days.. I must fill it out and get it notarized and mail it back in. Well thats going to take 2 weeks according to western union and additional 6 to 8 weeks before I recieve my $293.50. Why would it take a week to mail paper work on an old money order and another 6 to 8 weeks to get paid. Thats 2 plus months to collect money thats owed to myself from Western Union. I don’t get 2 plus months to pay for a money order when i purchase one. Then why 2 plus months to collect on one. So that your company can make the money in interest off your accounts at my expense? This is bad business in my opinion.
