Re: How can this happen?

Well from my one experience with Western Union I had to show full ID (i.e. my passport), and the details of which were recorded. Now unless the rules are different in different countries, then that should mean details of those receiving the money should be available. I would assume MoneyGram would be the same.

Admittedly, this assumes you can get the co-operation of the receiving country, but you would think a bit of pressure could be brought to bear here...
