    Hey. I'm not an US citizen, i'm from Venezuela, i can't travel to US to open it on my own either, i've done some research and didn't find any answers, a friend of mine got his account opened by some people who offer the service, they charged him something like $300. He got his card shiped already, and everything is in order...

    At first i didn't believe him but he has it all registered and is sending money to the account and using it for months now. I'd like to know if someone who is reputable in this forum offers this service?

    I want to open a bank account in the US on my name. I've asked previous times here and people contacted me claiming they will open accounts for me but they wouldn't be on my name.

    I want it to be on my name, my friends account is on his name and he hasn't even left this country, ever... I don't have a US address, but my friend didn't either and that wasn't a problem for whoever sold the account to him.

    Does anyone offer this service here or can recommend someone?

    Some banks will let you open an account even if you're not from the US. Not sure which one's though, just did a simple Google search.

    If i go to the USA even if i'm not a citizen i will be able to open a bank account pretty easily, but i can't. I want to open it from here, Venezuela.

    Google it. You just need to find a bank that allows it. There might not be any major banks that do (though, I'd assume they'd be more likely to).

    Why a US Bank Account and not something like PayPal?

    There's the PayPal debit card.

    Can you not get a bank account to withdraw money to in your country?

    Nope. If i could i would, my country is in a really huge shit state. There are just a very few type of accounts able to receive international money transfers and as soon as you get them money is converted at a really low rate, and you just have more of our shit currency which is worth nothing. No dollars anymore, dollars are exchanged at the fair rate on the blackmarket here.

    Paypal debit card is only for US citizens.

    Don't you like to earn in dollars in such a messed up country though?
    You can live really well there with $2,000 + a month. Of course, excluding the insecurity and other bad stuff.

    On topic: I have also tried to open an account without going there but everyone told me that's not possible. Is your friend telling you all the story of how he opened it?

    I only earn about $700 a month right now though. And this country is a shit hole to be honest, minimum wage here is around $40, and people can't really even eat a months worth of food with that. i'll be getting out next year as i have a Portuguese citizenship, hope to be earning at least $2000 a month by then so that i can sustain myself in Portugal.

    For those business plans i have though i really need a US bank account, or any other international bank account for that matter, but where i can withdraw my paypal money to, and on my Venezuelan paypal account i can only attach US bank accounts, nothing else not that i have any bank accounts anywhere else i can use.

    Yeah, he knows some people who run that service, they travel to USA all the time and they know people in the banks too, they have some big contacts i don't know the complete details, they move tens of thousands every month through their own bank accounts since they are selling/buying dollars here since it's a huge market to turn profit from due to all the regulations here, so maybe that's why the bank people listen to them.

    I could buy the account from them but i don't want to use him as a middle man, also i don't know them, he does. I rather purchase that from someone who has big reputation here. It is obviously possible.

    Don't really want to get involved buying an account from people from this country, if i do find someone on this forum i'll let you know... As i told you, it is indeed possible.

    And you don't ask your friend if he can help you why? I don't get it... there are countless threads on BHW and various other forums about this particular issue.. there is no reliable solution so far for it. If your friend has a working bank account in the US and only paid $300 for this, don't waste your time here, go get it tiger!

    Sounds really strange to me.. what is wrong doing that? are you into something illegal or is your friend? Are they all criminals who you are dealing with.. it makes no sense to try to find someone on an public forum that you don't know when you have a friend that is able to help you! Unless this is a hidden sales thread!!!!

    Well, the only illegal thing we're doing is converting dollars to our currency in the black market, because the goverment wants to pay shit rates which are not the real dollar/ourcurrency conversion. Nothing else i guess, i make my money fairly legally online doing CPA and things like that. This is not a hidden sales thread, i just want to buy that from here, and to be honest, we both started at the same time on IM too, we parted separate ways and found different ways to make money, he never asked for my help nor did i ask for his. So yeah, i don't want to be the first one to ask, well that and i don't want to buy an account from a Venezuelan guy who i can't see his reputation and got to rely on someone else telling me he is good, i rather buy that from someone on some forum where i can check his itrader, user status, account longetivity, etc...

    Not interested in VBA.

    I don't use skype.
