    WU won't send money straight to a DOC or a FBOP from here (NL), So I usually transfer money from my account to my best friend or a buddy of mine, and they sends it to my pp's through Western Union. I have 2 pp's that I send money to (one in a DOC and one in federal). The Western Union here doesn't support Quick Collect, blegh.

    I do know that Western Union offers a service to send it online with your creditcard.
    I hope this was useful somehow, lol

My PP sent me a copy of a letter by a company called KIRA who offer cheap deals, however, I looked them up on the internet as I didn't quite trust them. Turns out they offer 'cheap' phone deals but 300 min/month at least - where do I find 300 min/month time to spend on the phone??? AND they are looking for investors in Liberia (Africa). So I trust them even less. They didn't reply to my e-mail with questions either. But if anyone has good experiences with them, by all means let me know.

    I am wondering indeed if my penpal has a card phone on the facility or if they are all coin phones, because with a card phone I might indeed just send him the money. (by the way: has anyone experienced how difficult it is to send money through Western Union? Is there an easy way to send money from overseas?)

    Good luck and let me know if you find something that works. I'll keep searching too.
    if you really want to know about that Liberia thing, I can look into it for you. I know Liberia like the back of my hand.
