How can I send money anonymously?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
I need to send some money to someone over the net. They accept Paypal, Credit or Debit Card.

But I need to send this money anonymously!

Is there any way I can do this?


I heard that you can get temporary credit cards, onto which I can put a fake name. Is this true?

    Can you put it in an envelope and mail it to them. Oh naughty naughty.

    Get a money order and don't put your name on it? I don't know if you can, but a suggestion.

    Do you mean similar to a Visa gift card? Its pretty much a prepaid debit card but for you to give to other people...

    Can you do paypal in a fake name? Or get someone else to pay for you?

    And dare I ask why?!?

    Apparantly you can request a name change... but it takes a few days to do that I think. I guess thats one option.

    Getting someone else to pay for me isn't really an option.

    Postal order, or E-gold are two possibles.

    western union would be your best bet, the nigerian scammers weapon of choice. it used to be a really legit service back when i used to use it 5 or so years ago when i used to send large amounts of money to singapore every week. neever had any problems.

    so go for that if they'll accept it.

    "i am in the USA but i am buying this for my cousin in nigeria...." hope its not one of them ha

    paypal business account? just make up any random name for your business and bobs your aunts dogs friend.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Does that work though icey? Don't they check by making payments to your bank account? I suppose if they just use the numbers then, twould be ok though...

    lol you lot are well nosey.

    If it's going abroad I use FedEx.

    Also I like FedEx because they offer a 'package exchange' where you can get e.g. cash dropped off and your warez picked up.. and delivered to a place of your choice, or you can pick it up anonymously.

    I haven't used it for well over a year though so not sure if it's still in place and how much it is..

    Sorry guys I can't tell you! Especially now that you've all made such a big deal about it.

    Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

    Hm, this sounds like something I can do.

    What information will the recipient recieve? I'm sure I'll be able to hide my address. So they'll probably just recieve my *fake* business name right?

    You guys are probably thinking I'm well dodgy! :naughty:

    I'm not I promise. :thumb:
