@Earlyretirement I have to wait until my DNI before opening an account. Till them I have to make the visits. Did Xoom give you a contact or you simply started using the one person you know as a contact and giving them a heads up?earlyretirement said:I've sent in $2,000 US before with no problems.
I had to fill out all that extra paperwork just the first time I sent in. But after that I never had any problems at all and it went very quickly. However, keep in mind I'm sending the funds to my bank account in Argentina. I'm never picking up the funds. I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not.
I typically shoot an email over to my contact at More Money Argentina that asked for all the paperwork and just send him a heads up that I'm sending a payment and he confirms almost immediately that the funds will be deposited into my account.
They go and deposit it in cash into my local bank account never in increments of more than 5,000 pesos at a time.
