Remittance companies are such a scam, but most Filipinos do not have a bank account.  And even if they did, the funds would still be sent through a remittance company.

They can't seriously consider sending money to people who cannot even handle bank account... ? Bank transfer fee isn't high and only cost is government taking some documentary stamp thing for conversion. I recall it's somewhere between 1% to 0.1% or 0.05%.

The Philippine Government needs to wake up and start charging fees on ALL money remittances coming into the Philippines.  Like a small 5%.

Rich foreigners won't miss it and will just send that much more to help there loved ones ones here.

Its not like the Government can't use the added cash flow to conduct more studies in how to improve traffic, infrastructure, air quality, life for the common people.

REALLY???? Do you think some of it might go to something useful? The corruption is so deep none of that money would help. Since when does a government, any government do any good with the money it extracts from its citizenry?
