I will be getting some money from Germany through International Wire Transfer. I wanted to know a few things. 1) Is it safe to go through wire transfer route or is paypal better in terms of safety?? I've heard many bad experiences about International Wire Transfer, people have not received their funds for more than 2-3 months and stuff like that. 2) I spoke to my Bank manager, and got to know that the funds will be first transferred to correspondent bank and then will be transferred to my bank here in India. Is this normal?? So anyone here have received money from Germany to India?? Please reply here!!
