yes they do...all of my deposits and payouts have been $1000-2500...i have never deposited or cashed out anything less than that. the amount is not what flagged it, i just think they recognized it as a gaming institution transaction.  This is what the rep at the first western union told me as well. This might start happening more and more to people unfortunately.  Like I said, never had an issue until about a month and a half ago and then this past monday/tuesday.


thanks for the info brother...that is the way im gonna go since i dont have to fax pics of credit cards and drivers license..take care

Some tips that I've picked up from various threads I've read when using WU or MG...

1.  Try not to do it online.  This is probably the most important thing.  For some reason (I don't know why either) they seem to take a closer look at the online transactions than in person.

2.  Keep deposits under $1,000.

3.  Same as withdrawals

4.  Switch back and forth between MG and WU.  Don't only use just one of them.

5.  Don't deposit more than $3,000 per month using either method.

My bad, I was wrong. I mainly use MG, cuz for some reason I can't use WU online. Had no idea you could send up to $2500 via WU. Yeah, definitely keep all transactions with either company under $900
