Today I sent some money using Western Union.  The WU guy told me that they are now required to check IDs on anyone who sends money to Arizona.  WTF?  Fortunately I wasn't sending to AZ, so they didn't bother.

I dunno what they're doing with this info, but just a heads up to anyone trading to/from Arizona...

If the money sent is being used to some criminal activity, terrorism, money laundering, drugs, tax evasion, whatever, there's a record of who sent the money.

It's pretty standard procedure in any civilized country...
