USForex for money transfers

Will be making another international money transfer in a few months. Just want to see if anyone has used this company and what were the results. USForex.com
My sister has made transfers for me with B of A.

$5 service charges sure beats $30 or so that your local bank would charge to make a wire transfer.

I had to use them to pay a speeding ticket to the City of Venice. Those radar cameras are tough on traveler's pocketbook--2 mph over the limit.

Hi Bamaman; B of A, in addition to the service charges, also uses a higher rate of exchange than the posted daily rate.

Do you recall what USForex does?

I do electronic transfers with this company: http://www.xe.com/xetrade/

The price seems to be right. However, it does require setting up an account as strict as any banking account and might not be worth it for a one time usage.

I mentioned this in another area but I've used usforex a few times. I like that you get real people and not a call center in India.

They give the best exchange rates that I've found. You should look for yourself though.

Hope that helps.
