Here's the deal. I live in a country that doesn't have paypal. I work online as a transcriber and i'm happy to say that i make enough to pay my rent, bills, food... Now, the money is paid to me in my paypal account, which is in a different country and in my name. Then that money is withdrawn to my bank account in that country, which is also in my name. So far so good, paypal screws me over on the currency conversion from USD fo EUR, but from what i've read there's no easy way around that. And then they charge me like 2 or 3 EUR for each withdrawal i make to my debit card. I can live with these fees... And then the money ends up in my debit card... and I need to find a way to get the money from that county, to this country, and use it to live. I tried opening a bank account in that country, in the same bank that has a branch here, and then depositing money there and withdrawing here. The withdrawal fee is high, and what's even worse is that i can only withdraw in the local currency, which means that the bank makes the currency exchange fucking me over by giving me a low rate... Then I thought, because people i know often come over here, so whenever someone is coming over they can bring me whatever amount i have gathered... Well, i did that, and the first "run" shit got complicated and now i'm sitting here like an asshole waiting for a phone call in a day or two to pick up my fucking money.. pissed off man!! So anyway.. I came to ask here because people are like those birds that just repeat whatever they heard.. You know, Croc Western Union, Croc Check, Crock Money Gram... No, No, No, Fees, Fees, Fees, god*****damnit... Give me an idea? How can i do it and avoid the fees completely, or at least pay a very small fee per transaction? Note: I want to be able to get my money in Euros and then convert it in the local currency through one of the other conversion places that have better rates... I just need to get Euros out of the bank... And I also need Euros to pay rent with them... Anyway... Any ideas? Would it work if I would deposit the money from my debit card to a gambling site, an on-line casino for example, and then send the money from the casino to a bank account which I would open here locally... That's one idea i got... Although i wonder how "legal" would that be, and if it would even work. Thanks guys.
