Question...money

Recommended Posts

Western union would take your 1,000 baht and send it to Lao, less maybe 100 baht. No need for a bank account, friend can show ID and pick up at any western Union.

Yeah they will convert them to local currency..... thats what banks do.

Not for Thai Baht at most banks in North America.  They handle major currencies of which Thai Baht is not one.

Remember....she has no bank account.  Reading is rather important prior to replying.

Western Union, all she needs is ID to collect it.

Use the 500bht note to light a cigar.

There are local people here who are having a very very hard time, if you want to help then western union her $100 canadian dollars or even $50, you will feel good and you will have helped her and the kids. Also send a message saying this is a one off if you wish. Do what you know with in yourself is right for you.

Really....take two 500 baht notes to a Western bank ? 

Are you looking at making a fool out of yourself as a merit? Yes, in a bank you can actually exchange money. It might come as a surprise for you, but I promise you it´s true.

Remember what? Did you write that somewhere? Maybe you did, but you just forgot to include it in your post. However, that was not readable here. If that is true, which I seriously doubt. A mother of three with no bank account. That must mean that she is 5h1tting money and not need your help. I say that because if that would be true, she would have refused 600 baht from the government for every child up until they got 5 years old. To get that you need to have a bank account, and I don´t think she missed that.

As I said if it´s true, I am pretty sure she have a friend or a family member with a bank account. After that we have the story about a woman in Thailand or Laos asking you to send 500 baht from your home country. Really? Are you having a very boring Sunday? 

Just solve the problem. Me and many posters already told you what you can do.

Yep, that´s the follow up next sunday. Then maybe you see a new thread here that reads: I am not interested but a person asked me to invest 5 million baht in a pyramid scheme. I happen to have 10 million baht just resting in my lap, and I wonder how I can send that to a person without a bank account? Is EMS my best option?

Just put between sheet or two of paper and mail regular mail (from USA to Thailand $1.20).  Chances are she will get it in a few weeks and if not you have not lost much.  Believe most people use a birthday type card for such mailings as not likely to draw attention.

Your ignorance is surpassed only by your rudeness.

Consider using Western Union, or, air-mail. Research where a currency exchange is that handles Thai baht within comfortable distance from where you are (international airport ?).

 

I applaud your compassionate wish to help this woman out, even though the "back story" doesn't quite ring my plausibility bell.
