Last month, my aunt complained about the Western Union in the Philippines for taking .30 from the money that I'd sent. And it happens again today. Last time I sent $250 to my family in the Philippines and this time I sent $200. My aunt is the receiver, she texted me that they took .30 out of $200 so she received 199.70$ which is not fair for me because I have to pay here just to send it and they are going to charge .30$ for receiving! What is that for?
It doesn’t make sense to me because when I send the money, they never told me that the receiver will be charged too. I know it’s just a 30 pennies but it’s an act of corruption. Everything begins from a little amount, but when you count it together, this can be BIG! Hoping for someone to explain this for me please… Thanks so much!
