I'm asking for a friend (US Citizen living in Dumaguete) who has a Wells Fargo account in the US and has been trying for a while to transfer his funds here ($6,500). What I'd like to know is it possible and what his options are. I've seen on a previous thread that the first transfer from WF (which this would be) must be done in person as it's US law and as that's not an option what else can be done? For example could he transfer to another account in the US, get a credit card delivered to a friend in the US and posted here, link a paypal account etc etc. If he needs to close his WF account to do this, then that's also on the table. I will appreciate your ideas.
