Highly Recommendable Way To Send Money To The Philippines

Other than the not-so-easy way of sending the required documents from my initial use of your services, I am very satisfied with the speed of delivering the money to my family in the Philippines. They get it in less than an hour and the communication from your part with regards to the progress of the status of delivery is excellent.
