    Only use sharp knives. Blunt knives are more dangerous.

    In answer to my question, as long as you have ID, the transaction reference (technically known as the MTCN) and the payment sent to you as a receiver you can withdraw the money at any Western Union "office". See the website for locator.

    Mine is 0.38 miles away at the local sweet shop
