Hi. My name's Lane. You have reached JUSTANSWER.COM, a web site that connects users with experts in finance, tax, law and other areas. (You are not talking with Western Union) But I may be able to help.


Western Union's Customer Care says this, about situations where you've lost your MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number)


"You'll need the following information to track your money transfer:

1. Tracking number (MTCN) or sender's phone number
2. Receiver's country
3. Amount sent

If you don't know the tracking number (MTCN) or phone number associated with your profile, you can enter the following information to track your money transfer:

1. Sender's first name
2. Sender's last name
3. Receiver's country
4. Receiver's first name
5. Receiver's last name
6. Date the money was sent
7. Amount sent"


If you call the number on this page and provide all of this information and show them that their OWN customer care area says that if you don't have the MTCN number you can still track and retrieve the transfer by providing this information, they should be able to help you.


There's also a chat function on that page that would allow you to paste in the customer care web site that says this. Here it is:


Look about two thirds down the page
