Here are some excerpts from the Google Groups Thread:

“Hi all,

We are delighted to announce that Western Union has been launched as a
payment option for all 'individual' accounts in Bulgaria, Egypt,
Lithuania, Morocco and Taiwan.

To sign up to receive your next payment via Western Union, simply
follow the following instructions here by the 15th of the month:

When signing up, make sure that the payee name on your AdSense account
matches that on the government-issued ID card (Passport, Driver's
license, National ID etc) that you will bring to pick up your Western
Union Quick Cash payments.

Also, note that payments will be made in US dollars, but your Western
Union agent may be able to convert your payment to your local

“we badly need western union payment option in Bangladesh. western
union is operating in bangladesh for a few years, but why can't we
still get adsense payment in bangladesh through it? I'm having trouble
with my payment here”

“I second Jakuas in this case. Google has been keen to implement
Western Union as a payment option in many countries where otherwise
other methods like 'Cheque by Ordinary Post' or even 'Secure Delivery
Cheques' is either taking too much of time to reach at the publishers'
end or in the worst case, not even reaching.

You have implemented WU in Pakistan. There has been many reports from
asian countries like India, Bangladesh and so on that they are having
difficulty in receiving the payment. Interestingly, WU has been
functioning there for many years effectively.

So, why cant you implement WU in these countries especially as you
have implemented in in Pakistan. It should be rectified very soon.”
