    Hi guys,

    thanks a lot for opening my thread. I have some urgent things to ask. Right, so I am 17 currently, just finishing my High school. The thing is that this college I got selected in is asking for a LOT of money per year (I'm going to do undergraduate medicine) and I don't think my parents will really be able to make it to spending that much on me. So I've decided that I'll do an online job right after finishing high school because I really really need to collect some money for college. But since I'm not 18, I can't make a banking account around here and also I don't want to make my account somewhere here or have to share my details or something too much because honestly i just need an account where I can dump in my small small earnings at, I wouldn't have bothered with it if they could just send me the cash really, but that isn't the way things go around... I don't want to tell my parents that I will be earning money no matter how less I earn or that I made myself an account (main reason I can't make an account around here since I'm guessing they'd ask for parents signature), because they aren't the most understanding parents someone could get and would make a fuss out of it. So I wanna keep this thing low, just work whenever I can and put in my money somewhere safe. I was looking up things like offshore banking but so many people say that they are getting very hostile and untrustworthy so I wanted to know your honest opinions as to what I should do about my very complicated situation. Please don't tell me to talk to my parents or discuss out stuff with them, if you have any advice as to how I can work out this problem then please do post. I'd appreciate any help

    Thanks again

    Also I forgot to say that I have 3 months before I start college where I can earn some decent money. If anyone knows how I can do that online, then that will be appreciated a lot by me too.

    Why can't you just deposit the money to a custodial bank account. Then once you're 18 you can establish a regular checking account and move the funds with your parents permission.

    Thanks for replying everyone. Thats a good idea but how do I tell my job payers to send it to this custodial bank? As in what ID and stuff to i give them? And one more thing, I don't have to open a bank account that belongs to my nationality right? I being Irish perhaps can open an arab bank account eh?
