How Best To Send Money To Israel

Fri Mar 01, 2002 3:52 am

I need to send money to a friend in Israel and since there are several Israelis in this forum, I hope someone will know how to do this. I am talking about $100.

If I get a money order, cashier's check, etc., can my friend cash it easily at a bank, post office, etc.? Which is most economical? Safe?

Thanks for the help  Smile

Haven't you ever heard of the internet, wire transfers, etc?

Other than that, I agree with RealHigh.

Do you have a credit card? An internet service, such as Mls515 suggested, is probably one of the most secure and cheapest ways of doing it.

And RealHigh's comments were quite unneccessary.  Insane

Thanks, I guess I forgot to mention that this would be a wedding gift, and I would have liked for them to receive it in a card, somewhat as a surprise. Of course I have thought of wire transfer, PayPal etc. and that may end up being what I do.

Thanks for the help,

Thanks, LY772.

Just out of curiosity....
Other than that, I agree with RealHigh.

What were Realhigh's comments? They could not have been too complimentary since they are gone now.
