Why Western Union is holding my money and Google supporting it by keeping Quiet. 0 Recommended Answers 5 Replies 5 Upvotes
My adsense earning was on hold for long time, because payment option was not configured. Recently, I set the payment options by linking my bank account (check) and Western Union. Google refuse to consider my bank account (check) as primary payment so only option I had is Western Union. Google and Western Union clearly states that you can collect your Western Union money from local Western Union agent with valid government issue ID and Western Union MTCN. With both (government issue ID and Western Union MTCN) I headed to local Western Union agent to collect my money but I was refused by Western Union, simply because money was sent for another country not currently where I am now. I was shocked and surprise, how Google can do that when it is tracking each and every moment of users authentication, location and many more and this is serious matter of money. I called the Western Union customer care line and wasted my 1 hour without any fruitful result. Western Union verified everything, agent conveyed me that information is correct, but refuse simply that money is send to another country, although, I am same person and I have moved from location where I open my Adsense account almost 15 years back(who keep track of all those). I asked Western Union to cancel payment and send money back to Google, but they simply rejected me saying- Google has to request that. Why Google need to ask return the money when Western Union verified that it is my money and Google has sent for me? I tried to look Google sent Western Union payment receipt but don't see any contact information of Google if any such issues arises. Google keeping silent in such matter make even worse ! I know there are many like me, who are stuck in catch-22 game of these corporations?
What is the solution? Any suggestions- highly appreciated !
