    Hey gang, hope everyone is well. I got a phone call from a 'mate of mine who is having a bitching problem and I didn't know the most current answers so I figured to come here and ask; I promised to get back to her in a day or so and really want to help him out. Here is the problem:

    She did some freelance work for someone who paid her by Paypal (he offered her more bux since he didnt have cash but had funds in his own Paypal account). She has an account, i think she said it was verified with one of those vcards but now wants to draw the money out, about $1000. She's in the US, but her credit really sucks so she cant open a bank account (loser ex-husband did bunch of bad shit to her). She'd like to keep the Paypal account and ideally draw this cash out and maybe again some more in the future if she starts making some money online since she's a struggling single mother and her part-time job doesnt make ends meet.

    Any ideas on how she can pull this cash out without a bank account and without losing a chunk of it to someone else? What is the most current reliable technique so she wont get hosed and lose the whole thing?

    Thanks in advance guys. This community rocks.

    Thanks but I think you missed the point. She has HORRID credit, and even though its a debit card, Paypal wont issue it to folks with very bad credit. She tried. Got turned down.

    Any other ideas?

    If you have paypal why can't she just send you the money and you can withdraw it your account on her behalf then just send it by bank transfer for free?

    Job done, no expenses spared.

    Paypal has an option of sending money as a gift and paypal doesn't charge you any fees for that.

    Frankly? Because I don't want to do it for her every single time she wants to take money out. She's a friend and I'd love to help, especially that shes hit some hard times and got some money coming to her. But I dont know what shes going to get into in the online space, how she'll make money, and then the nagging for "can I send you some money to take out for me?..." begins.

    Any way I can direct her to do this herself? Rush Card doesnt work so well any more as its gotten expensive, as well as what used to be viable options. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Open a new bank account in your name, then sign all the cheques and give them to her? She can add that bank account to her paypal and withdraw the money to it, I don't think name makes a difference, from what I've read so far, and I did quite a lot of research on it.

    Yikes!!! Shes my friend, not my G/F or wife. Thanks for the idea but i am not opening a bank account in my name for someone else to hand over to them.

    Any other ways to get money out of Paypal from someone who has HORRIBLE credit? She cant open a traditional bank account nor get a credit card. What ways works?

    How? She can't even get it out and needs it to survive. I guess I will have her send it to me if all else fails and I will pull it out of my Paypal this time, but there has to be a better way for her to do it herself...

    Tell her to fix her credit and send her a CPA offer. >_>

    And you're still unwilling to take 5 minutes out of your time and help her? How long is it going to take? She sends the money to your paypal, you type in the amount at the withdraw screen, withdraw. Then you write her a cheque 3 days later.

    This may come off as a bit offensive, but I'm glad I don't have friends like you. You're the sort of person who wastes an hour saying "I wish I could help" but doesn't want to spend 5 minutes actually helping them.

    I'm unsubscribing. Last bit of advice: You might be able to help her by telling her to get better friends.

    Western Union got a prepaid MasterCard. She will have more options to withdraw if she will get one.

    She could open a etrade bank account, I think they don't care about your credit score.

    use an exchanger for WU or MG

    obviously you will end up paying fees and sometimes conversion fee since many send from asia or europe but still all should be good :)

    The best way is either with the paypal debit card.

    since she is unable to get that.

    The next fastest way is to use the paypal funds to buy something using paypal.

    Bank transfers out of paypal to your connected account take a few days to complete.

    She can send the payment to you by using "Make Payment" option available in the Paypal and then you can withdraw and send her via cheque or DD.

    If your money blocked in your Paypal Account you can let them know your local bank info they could wire it. my friend got the money back on this way.

    In my opinion there is still a way that she can withdraw her funds from PP.

    Suggest her about Payoneer US Payment Service. here you can signup for US payment service, it will gives you Virtual US bank Account number then she can add that VBA number to paypal to withdraw her funds from pp to payoneer.

    And payoneer offering MasterCards and Bank withdrawals..

    Obviously it deducts some fee. but the better and safe way is only that I think. because she will have authority on her funds.

    Goodluck!
