The holidays are coming soon and some of you would might like to send money to someone that you know in another country to buy themselves a nice gift. When sending money to friends or family abroad you do not want the money to sit around for days and pay high fees when you make the transfer. Until my son went to Asia, I had never had to send money to anyone overseas and did not know how to proceed. The first thing that came to my mind was: how secure is it to do so?
