This includes how much is being sent, the method it is being delivered or the exact Western Union agent location if it’s being picked up. Some fast options make money available in minutes, while others can take a day or more.

How can I protect my money transfer to Turkey from fraud?

Make sure you know who the recipient is, enter their details correctly and know why you are sending the money to Turkey. At Money Services we advise you to not send money to Turkey for a purchase made online, to claim lottery winnings, donate to charity, resolve an immigration matter or pay taxes.
