Selecting a Money Transfer Service: Choose One That Looks Out for You
As a remittance sender, you want to select a money transfer company that is vigilantly pursuing human and technological resources to protect you and your family from online predators whose mission is to coerce you to send your money to them.
You are entrusting your money transfer company to safeguard your account with them, as well as the entire transfer process, so that your money arrives safely in the hands of your loved ones at home.
That is one big responsibility and you need to have confidence that the company you choose is up to the challenge. Your provider must be prepared to deliver rapid and effective intervention should anyone or anything compromise your ability to send money, or if you happen to fall victim to a scam.
Check to see if your prospective money transfer company is using top-of-the-line data security encryption, so that all information sent between your web browser and your money transfer company’s website remains private and secure.
Generally, if a provider is “bullish” on security, they will trumpet that fact on their website. More detailed information regarding certifications from third-party security and privacy organizations should also be available on their website.
So how secure is the Xoom?
