Can't Access Western Union - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I have been trying to get onto westernunion.com since Friday July 31st. It isn't responding. I am located in Japan on military base. I've used it several times, but i'm getting a "there is a redirect Loop" or "too many redirects".

Cannot access the Western Union website from Okinawa, Japan. I have tried four different computers, three different networks, three different ISP, and four different web browsers. ALL get similar error messages: "there is a redirect Loop" or "too many redirects". Must be a regional problem in Okinawa/Japan.

I am trying to send money to Brazil via my bank account in Toronto and no matter what I do I do not have any success. That never happened before though.

I tried sending different amounts to other countries such as Australia, Colombia and it worked fine!!

How come it is not working for Brazil??

re getting an error... It asked me for a number that the bank sent me- but that popup disappeared immediately before i could even read all of it. It looks like the money has been taken from my credit card, as i wanted, but it is not listed on the website for my credit card under the activity section.

I have been using western union for over a year now. Send money every month to the same person. Then, about a month ago, I could not log into my account. It has been a nightmare ever since. I have tried to close, then reopen the account, but it won't close, or let me log in. Finally opened a new account with a new email, but it won't let me use my card!! The same card i've used for over a year. I can send by western union phone, but instead of costing me 8 dollars, it cost me $40 dollars or more!! This is completely ridiculous!! It is very difficult to get money to latin america without Western Union!!

Franziska von Hacht thats perhaps incorrect.. about the scamming people but i tell you what if you are having problems -- try using Internet Explorer (i thought no one used that browser) as chrome, mozilla etc just were giving me errors.. and IE thank god worked as advised by one person in Western union after numerous calls trying to get work out why it was giving me errors or some crazy messages that id done over 30 transactions in the month.

I have been trying to send money overseas through Western Union since the 31st of January, and I just tried it again now on the 6th of February and it's STILL not working! It's also not working at the Post Office. And no proper explanation as to why this is happening has been given, although my bank has told me that it has to do with people scamming other people.

had some big problems with recent WU upgrades. the bank to bank tf not working. I had to fork out money at a compromised rate and pay a fee and some major problems with these people that when things go wrong they are painful to deal with. Having automated systems is good but when things go wrong and they dont ADDRESS YOUR QUESTIONS its a pain in the ass. Site up, service processing is down.
