I havent use the moneygram but I didnt have any trouble using the western union, in fact you can check it on line so that before you go to any Western union services you know that the control number that was given to you is correct and the money is available for pick up.

I have heard that if you send money western union to someone you dont know say for a job {like secret Shopping } they ask you to shopping at sears,walmart,walgreens and then send a money Gram for x amount of dollars so you can elvauate the service you recieved. but I have been told you can not trace western union and I am wondering if money grams can be traced Does any one know?

i have been told that money gram is the cheaper one and you can get your money faster. you can get it in the same day. i have used western union. it takes 24 hrs just for the person you are sending money to get the money.

hmm thats intresting, cause for me ive only used western union, but i know nothing about money gram. and with western union i have sent money to family and recieved in like 5-15mins. however from my research money gram seams to be cheaper i did a quick check online, and money gram says its cost 30cdn to send 600cdn to europe, and for western union online it says it cost 60cdn to send 600cdn to europe. i just want to verify with ppl what info is correct, and its often nicer to get the customers opinion thank you very much for you view! greatly appreciated
