      There is a major bug in the money transfer calculation. TCS should be max 5% of the transfer. However the WU system calculates at a much higher rate, even more than 1000%. This is because it recharges TCS for all prior transactions even when charged. Although the bug has been highlighted to WU the issue remains unresolved for 3 weeks.
