  1.

    Fill out the appropriate 'To Send Money' form provided and present to the Agent the original copy of your valid photo identification. You can call the Philippines Customer Hotline at 02 888-1200 (for calls within Metro Manila) or 1-800-1-888-1200 (toll-free nationwide via PLDT Lines), 1-800-9-888-1200 (toll-free nationwide via Globe Lines) or +632 888-1200 (for calls from overseas) for more information.
    If you have a Western Union® Gold Card issued in the Philippines, please present the card along with your valid photo identification or other supporting documents to the Agent.
  2.  

    2PAY FOR YOUR MONEY TRANSFER

    Give the Agent the amount of money that you (the Sender) want to send together with the necessary service fees2.
  3.  

    3SIGN AND RECEIVE YOUR RECEIPT

    You will be required to sign a receipt after you have verified that all the details printed on the receipt are correct.  One of the details printed on the receipt is your Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN).  The MTCN is important and must only be disclosed to your intended recipient.
  4.  

    4INFORM YOUR RECEIVER

    It is time to contact the intended Receiver (or beneficiary) of your money, and relay the necessary information to him/her, such as the MTCN, your complete name (as signed in the 'To Send Money' form), amount sent, and the country the money was sent from.
  5.  

    5TRACK YOUR MONEY

    Go to the 'Tracking' link that's on the homepage of our website.  You can then track the status of your money by typing in your name (as signed in the 'To Send Money' form) and MTCN.
    To track the status of your money transfer, click the link below:
    You can also call the Philippines Customer Hotline at 02 888-1200 (for calls within Metro Manila) or 1-800-1-888-1200 (toll-free nationwide via PLDT Lines), 1-800-9-888-1200 (toll-free nationwide via Globe Lines) or +632 888-1200 (for calls from overseas), to check the status of your money transfer. 
  6. Is it really secure to send payment in Western Union?
    Ofcourse! If the person don't bring or forgot to bring his/her VALID I.D., he/she wouldn't able to claim or send money. So for example, you send the money to him and his information given to you isn't correct although he knows the tracking number that you've given, still he can't claim your money. The point here is YOU CAN TRACK THE PERSON EASILY with his valid identification and complete valid address.

    For more secured, GIVE A TEST QUESTION (can be found in 'To Send Money' form) and tell it to the beneficiary only. If the test question cannot be answered, the money that you have sent will not be possible to claim even he/she brings his/her valid I.D.

    MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number) IS IMPORTANT IN CLAIMING THE MONEY.

  2. HELP!
    I was about to claim money sent out for me last Saturday (Dec 6) in MLhuillier.
    But according to their "system" the KPTN I gave bears a different Name of Sender, different Name of Receiver and different Amount (Php) sent.

    I showed the receipt pix to the teller (which my boyfriend sent in msgr) & she said to let the sender clarify things with the forwarding company in their area (he's in KSA btw).

    I'm totally freaking out right now.
