    I must send weekly 5-10K USD to Bulgaria from Thailand. So far we use moneygram, it works but they start asking questions. Is there any other option to get the money over within 2 days ?

    From where do you want to send it, like bank account or money... if its money then WU is not a bad option.

    WU is almost double the fee that moneygram takes, thats why i curently use MG.. however the amount is high and last time they asked about the purpose.. i am not sure how long they will accept 5K transfers..

    I have bank account but a transfer will take a week or so, also the receiver can withdraw only 200EURO a day in bulgaria with foreign atm card.. i toyed with that option aswell but its no good.

    good idea indeed.. however MG could counter and say: 'sorry our service is for personal transactions only'

    Why are you worried about them asking questions? If its all legal what your doing continue to do it.

    Well its legal, i just wonder if you know about better options that WU or MG. Transferring 5K out of Thailand every week by MG draws attention and i want to be prepared or look for alternatives if they reject or such
