Bitcoin - a safe Alternative to Moneygram/Western Union?

Postby Hooch » Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:53 am

Hello Lads,

I need to wire some money, and normally I would use Moneygram or Western Union for that. But both of those Services have a steep price tag attached (for the amount I would wire, it is several hundred bucks). So, being the dirty cheap skate I am, I am looking for Alternatives that are as safe, and cheaper.

I have found Bitcoin would be a good substitute, I can do it all online, and it seems to be a relative stable currency at the moment. I would only buy so much Bitcoins to pay for the service and the amount of money I need to move, not invest in it. It is a poor Investment IMHO.

Does anyone have experience with this? I think I would go with , cause I can use paypal with it, and it is inexpensive.

Looking forward for any Insight,

Bitcoins is one way another is PayPal if the other person has an Account.
I dont know what the fees are on PayPal but I would suspect it to be less than Moneygram/WesterUnion.

Someone really should do something about this. Women at risk of living life is just unacceptable.
Maybe the platter should be made bigger and more silvery.

Agreed. The transfers are instantaneous and the money goes straight into the recipient's bank account. It's also cheaper than Moneygram et al.
