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.

Western union is the worse money transfer company I have ever used. Almost every time I use this service as a last resort. The login button doesn't work for some dumn ass reason and their stellar chat isn't worth shit either. The only reason I use this jackass service is because I can't find my Moneygram password. As soon as I do. I will never use WU again. You guys are sad.

I have been getting the "spurious message right at the end saying the payment failed" since last night. Called in and they are unable to look at my account as the system is under maintenance. But they certainly pushed hard to do the transaction over the phone. He also wanted me to register my card number which was unheard of before.

Western Union money sending service has (according to WU customer service) been down since yesterday, with no identified fix time. No publicity, no messages on web site

Why on earth do they not warn you before leading you through a payment process, just to get some spurious message right at the end saying the payment failed. They even keep prompting you try again!!!

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!!
