Wiring money through a money transfer company is faster than wiring money through a bank, in some cases, it can cost more. You can visit a walk-in office, or use the Internet or phone to send money. Tell the person you’re sending the money to that it’s coming so they can pick it up at the local office in their country. Ask your friends and family about the money transfer services they use and try to find the lowest price.
Never transfer money to someone you don’t know using a money transfer company. Often, criminals will try to trick you into sending money this way.
