I was trying to initiate a Western Union transaction from my bank account, but toward the end of the process I was prompted by this request, which is to type in my bank’s login information.
The request evidently comes through PayWithMyBank, which I guess is what Western Union uses to process bank transfers.
I can’t imagine how this passes any kind of security muster — disclosing one’s bank login information to a third party? It sounds ridiculous, and I can’t even imagine what they do with the login credentials. (And this is not even a bank, as in this related question.)
(Both site’s security certificates checked out, BTW.)
Is there any angle from which this isn’t a completely insane scenario?
