Not quite sure i get the "jist" of this really? Any Western Union payment can be verified online, when you track a money transfer : https://wumt.westernunion.com/WUCOMW...xtSecurePage=Y
After you see that the number you were sent is not bogus, and that the funds are really waiting, you go to a WU counter and pick up available funds. After that, you ship out the item.
Or are there still folk who are shipping out items to folk they dont know before they have the cash in-hand?
Dont mean to sound belittling to anyone, but if you are, then you cant really complain when someone takes advantage of your, kind nature.
I would only ship out to someone in advance if i had done a bit of business with them before.
