My dad recently tried sending money to Nigeria and the W.U. person here in the U.S. said that they do not send money to Nigeria.

Have others heard this?

Merry Christmas.

Confused Has he called customer service? I thought WU sent money anywhere they have offices..

Somehow, I doubt it. But it would be a definite improvement.

Yes, please if you have some official documentation on this, let us know.

Maybe it's just a temporary thing in his office?

Must be a local office thing.

Was just having a look at the Aus site of WU and can definitely send to Nigeria. Can specify Aus dollars or Nigerian Naira.

I was looking at western union's web site yesterday and there was no mention of a new policy. If it is it's stupid or at least a stupid way of handling the situation. Not everyone in Nigeria are scammers.

Sorry double-O that your dad wasn't able to send some money home for the holidays via WU. Did he send it through MG?

Maybe they thought my dad was getting himself into trouble and lied to try to protect him. Confused

^^^^ How much did he try to send?

I understand there's a limit per transfer to Nigeria.

Maybe your father was just over the limit, they told him 'no,' and he misunderstood.

^^^ Do you by chance know what the limit is?

If you don't, no biggie, I can always invent one the next time I have to "use" them.

Can't really see WU not allowing money to be sent to Nigeria. They'd probably go bankrupt if they did. Laughing

It's possible the WU operator's alarm bells sounded. If it is a new policy, even an unwritten one, it's yet another thing the lads have messed up for the decent huge majority of people in Nigeria.

The limit used to be $2999 I believe. I have been spreading rumours to all my mugus that WU has suspended transactions to Nigeria. Maybe they caught wind of that. Laughing

"I've tried W.U. transfer, but they won't send my money because it's going to nigeria"
Then suggest they pick it up in Accra, Ghana instead? Rolling Eyes
