I use western union to send my man money, though the fee is kind of steep I don't mind. It posts to his account within 15 minutes.
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

I used Jpay the other week.. definitely cheaper and according to Mr. Diaz (CO Controller) the fee is suppose to drop $1.00 the first of November. I paid $3.95 to send $20.00 .. I think for $20.01 to $100.00 the fee is $6.95. There is a post below about this same subject (DOC no longer accepting paper money orders) and I posted contact information for Mr. Diaz... I've e-mailed him my feelings but as one person I'm sure it meant nothing to him.

Myself, I think there is a problem with it. I don't mind that others charge more for the service, but, I think that if they are getting a cut of the high-end and then taking out the 20% at the receiving end, that it's total crap. It's not like they aren't paying enough for restitution, their own needs (okay, only some of their needs), but I'm the one that's getting screwed. I prefer the Post Office anyway, I like not having to rely on electronic transfers. Work with computers and Internet services enough to know, not as safe as they make it seem!
