?Western Union for apartment deposit

Jump to last reply

I have been stymied at every corner. Need to send
Swiss landlady Ferienwohnung deposit. I trust her
implicitly. No Paypal or credit card. My bank only does International Transfers Monday-Friday before 2 PM "because recent US government regulations" require identity verification, etc through their NewYork International Department.
Transaction must be completed on same business DATE and not using a surrogate! My summer days off are bank holidays. I work in health care 6am-2:30 and CANNOT leave early in the next weeks.
My next attempt is Western Union. This is a transfer to a Swiss bank account ( I have all the info). Fee charged is $20. (Bank is $40). Yes, poor conversion rate, but amounts to about $15 extra on total amount, so still competitive.
Seeing that I trust the receiver, is there any GREAT risk on MY end?
