It is possible to track a money transfer by using the money transfer control number, or MTCN, along with the sender's first and last name, as evidenced on the website for Western Union. It is necessary to know the name of the money transfer service that was used.
Money transfer tracking is often performed online using the service provider's money transfer tracking system. Customers can go directly to the official website of the money transfer agent and look for a section titled Check Transfer Status, or one with similar wording. It is sometimes necessary to know the amount of money sent, according to the Western Union Jamaica website. Customers without the MTCN can retrieve the tracking information by providing details such as the sender's first and last name, the receiver's name and country, the date sent and the amount of the transfer..
