    pwede po ba gamitin ang philhealth id para kumoha ng pera?

    I’ve been using Western Uniom to send money to my family here in the phil for almost ten years now.   Just recently, I had a very bad experience with this company when the refused to release a money sent to me by my friend from Cebu for the simple reason that my ID (passport) has expired.   They called the sender to verify my identity and the sender confirmed I am the right person but still they refused to release the money. I requested to talk to their superior
    and he decided to release the money to me but after a minute he changed his decision.   I pleaded to him That I needed the money badly for my hospitalization because I am a stroke victim and I need to buy my medicines but still they refused to release the money despite showing them my other IDs.   This makes me think that Western Union only wants to make profits and not to serve the people as the claim in their ads.   Your staff are incompetent to handle this kind of situation and does not aware of your company policies.  Your company has no sense of social responsibility, all you are after is to make profit.  You are the most cruelest company I’ve ever known.  You have business because of us your customers so don’t treat us badly.  Your greed and avarice will eventually cause your company fall because sooner or later your customers will know how cruel your company is.
