How does the security question work for Western Union Money Transfers?

When you send a Western Union Money Transfer you will be asked to enter a security question that must be answered correctly by the recipient before they can collect the funds. The question can be anything you like. Just make sure only you and the receiver know the answer.

You will also need to supply the recipient with a Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN), which is displayed on-screen when you (the sender) complete the transfer.
