    Avoid western union… there are cheaper options. This advert posing as news is poorly done, this must be made by an OJT. Ganito na ba ang Inquirer?

    Why would you send money from the Philippines. Firstly, the Phillipine peso when converted to foreign currency is without value. Secondly, it should be overseas Fillipinos sending mondey back home to benefit from the multiplier effect of currency conversion. What would take one day to earn overseas may already provide for a family in the Philipines for a month.

    I’m puzzled every time new remittance schemes crop up on the boob tubes. Does it mean that there’s so much profits in the remittance business? Otherwise, they won’t bother at all!

    It is VERY unethical to present a paid advertisement as an editorial article. Will the writer of it now be fired like the cartoonist?
    Moreover, Western Union is the worst around for sending money. They ask a huge fee and their exchange rates are very bad. The best way to send is by bank to bank by SWIFT.
