    Hi, Im purchasing a facebook site from someone in Pakistan, he doesnt have a paypal account and he cant make an account there either as his bank isnt supported or something.. ?
    Anyway he asked for me to go into my local bank and do a direct transfer but i dont want to do that, And so i suggested Western Union as i know it supports Pakistan, He said once again he doesnt need to make an account all i got to do is send him payment, and give him the unique code so he can collect the money.

    My mind = Confused as iv only ever used paypal.. whats this code stuff about? and is western union safe to use? I.e if he does me over is there a way i can dispute to get my money back.

    thanks guys

    Western Union is widely used by scammers. Try to find a safer method, as with WU - once the money is in his hands, there's no way you can get it back.

    So if i get scammed with moneybookers can i dispute it?
    Also do they have to have an account with moneybookers? as with WU he said he didnt need an account to get the money

    With MoneyBookers (Now actually called Skrill), he would need to have an account. It also serves Pakistan, so he can't say he can't get an account with them.

    If you use Western Union, all he would have to do, is to go to his local Western Union office with the code you give to him (which in turn is given to you when you give your money to your local WU office) and get the money. You will not be able to prove anything, if he disappears with it.

    I looked on moneybookers and it says ''
    Pay anyone with an email address - even if they don't have a
    Skrill (Moneybookers)account!''

    As it suggests to me, it would e-mail them and ask them to create an account. Same goes with PayPal - if the recipient does not have an account, PayPal e-mails them and asks to create one. How do you think they would be able to get the money if they don't have any financial account attached to either Moneybookers or PayPal? They wouldn't send you a picture of the money and let you print it, would they? No offense there:)
