Not true, I have deposited $500 numerous times without MG & WU asking for ID. When I deposit $1,250 they asked for ID. The question is at what amount is ID required for both MG & WU?

I believe WU is under $999.99 - No ID required...
Anything over, ID is required...

do not use mg or wu guys,money is being stolen,from a book on  another forum: I had a player send $1500 WU last night. He received an email stating that the transaction was available for pick up. When we tried to pick it up it was not showing up on the system. 

The player called them today. The security dept at WU told him that they knew that it was for gambling and they were keeping the money. They gave him an option to get the money back. He would have to file a complain with the police and his district attorney and show up to court.

I wish this was an isolated case but I have seen it happen twice in the past month with our company and this client spoke to someone in the industry that said that they have more than 15 complaints about the same thing in the past 2 weeks.

Which sportsbook do you represent? The key is to keep the deposits under $1,000. Anytthing over that can draw red flags, especially if you're depositing numerous times in a short time frame.

Keep it under 1K and send odd amounts.I usually send amounts like $554 and $716 and one time I sent $997 and had no problems. Do the same thing when you request payouts. It's a pain in the behind but at least you can get your money in and out without hassels. Good Luck!
