I've used it, but I remember it was a bit of a struggle. Needed loads of documents as I recall.

Have a look on the site for some more info http://www.westernunion.co.uk/info/homePage.asp

If you decide it might be too much hassle, could you do a bank transfer?

Only use WU to send payments to people you know and trust (i.e. not to anyone on eBay).

Where are you sending it?

Any particular reason why you can't use things like bank transfer?

I was thinking of using it to send some money to Tanzania but the problem is the other person needs ID documents too.

If it's through ebay, it's a total scam. 100% guarenteed.
