    i dont know how to put the money i want to receive in dollars , because it was send to me in dollars not in Naira

    1. Sabinus

      Adekunle hi, as stated, Western Union Money Transfers can only be received in Naira. The sender should inform you of the Naira equivalent together with the other details. It is this Naira equivalent that you will enter and receive into your account once the transfer is okayed. Thank you for choosing Quickteller.
