    On their websites it allows you to purchase with a credit/debit card a money order. Now my paypal debit card expired today (teach me to pay attention) and I need to pay rent today also. I have the money in paypal so am wondering if I can send a western union to myself using a generated card from the paypal plugin or if there is some like money laundering type crap that will hold me up?

    Anyone done this before? Thanks!

    No I mean I will generate a one time use credit card with my paypal plugin and then use that number on the western union site. So you have sent one to yourself before? (doesnt matter if with paypal or not).

    try to send the money to a friend who has a stable PP account of yours as service by PayPal and he gives you the cash to avoid the fees from PP and WU or MG.

    FYI I just got off the phone with both places and they don't let the sender and recipient have the same name since new laws after 9/11.

    They told me to just send it to a friend and go with them to pick it up.

    @simogold I've only been in Florida for about 3 weeks so I dont know anyone with a paypal yet. Thanks for the suggestion though :)
