I have deposited the check as we agreed with western Union. All you have to do is to contact them at:- (union.western83@yahoo.com.tr) they will give you direction on how you will be receiving the funds daily.

My agreement with them is 5,000 USD two time daily until the whole of 1.5USD is transferred. You are not expected to pay for the transfer charge as that will be deducted from the funds once the remittance is done.

send the below information to them:

Receiver name: _________

The only fee you will send to them before the transfer is 75USD for paper work and remittance. E-mail them with above address, the contact person is Mr Williams Mark, with phone number:- +229 9692-8934
