I came to the UK to study a PHD four years ago and I'm working in a full-time job now. Whenever I need to send money to back to my country, either to pay some bills or to help my family out, I always turn to companies specialised in international money transfer. You can lose lots of money if you don’t get expert information on foreign exchange!
