A friend of mine transferred me some money via an OMT office. OMT stands for Online Money Transfer and is part of Western Union. I checked out their website and saw a small logo on the right where i could search for locations but it turns out the search button is not working. I looked out in their locations and found an office in the same building i work in.
I went up the first time 10 days ago, the OMT employee was not there and i was told he was sick.
Two days later, i go up to see if he is no longer sick. The employee is still not there. He has a day off this time.
Five days later, i go up again and he still did not show up to work. I am told to go to another office down the road, but with the heat outside, there’s no way am walking all that distance.
Yesterday, i went up for a last time and as usual, no one is there. So i took a cab and drove to another location and collected my money.
I mean i don’t get it, what’s the point of having over 700 locations if there’s no one at those locations?
what’s the point of ‘online money transfer’ if you still have to go to a physical office?
Good point 🙂
It means maybe that they have a website (online) lol
HAHA.. good point “F”..yeah there is a Western Union right below my office.,.I’ve gone there a few times..not the brightest people I’ve ever met, which is very concerning because they are handling your money..but at least the office is staffed!
