any one have experience depositing to stars via Western Union?

I've used this method on a couple of sites. I have yet to figure out why everyone doesn't deposit this way. It goes through as soon as you put in your reference # on the cashier screen. I highly recommend this method to deposit. Just follow the instructions and you should have no problems.

how many times have you deposited to stars using WU?
I can say I did a wire transfer with FullTilt. They only accept MoneyGram. The fee is $10, the minimum deposit is $250, and the total turn around time was about 1 hour from me wiring the money to me playing at the tables.
I have a friend that does the WU and they said it's the exact same deal. You just need to email PS customer service and get the wiring information.

re: Poker & deposit via Western Union (pokerstars)
I've deposited with western union once but i wouldnt reccomend it because the fees are so high , especially if you want to deposit small amounts, for example $100 will run you $20 in fees. They're not really good for large deposits either because i think the most you can send is $1000-$3000 every month.
