FIRST NAME: ROBERT
LAST NAME: BUCHOLZ
COUNTRY: FRANCE
PHONE NUMBER: +33(0)1 48 000836

The deposit needs to be sent to FRANCE, because our main office in Europe is in FRANCE and all our financial transactions have to be made there.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WESTERNUNION WILL HAVE A FEE FOR THEIR SERVICES BUT THE FEE IS INCLUDED IN THE DEPOSIT THAT YOU NEED TO MAKE. FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE FEE WILL BE $70/TRANSFER, YOU WILL MAKE ONE DEPOSIT OF $1330USD + $70USD (FEE) = $1400USD.

IMPORTANT WESTERNUNION TIPS:

1. The deposit needs to be made at a WesternUnion office, with CASH (this is the single payment method accepted).
2. You will need to have your ID with you when sending the deposit.
3. The money, USD will automatically be converted to EUROS, don't worry, this is normal for all transactions.
4. You will need to select PICK UP BY LOCATION option, in order to make the deposit to our agent name.

*** In order to make the deposit to our agent you need to visit a WesternUnion office (you can find them in any Walgreens or Pay-O-Matic), or you can just use their website to find a location near your address. Please note that you cannot use their website to make the deposit, you need to visit an actual office/machine.

Here are a couple of WesternUnion locations near your address:

SAFEWAY #3500
6850 Ne Bothell Way
Kenmore, WA, 98028-2404

RITE AID #6325

The next step of the transaction is to make the deposit to our company's payments representative agents.
