Paying money

Since the western union thread seems to be broken somehow, let me post here a excerpt of an article taken from tunispro.net, which recommends the right methods of dealing with giving money to someone:

----------
Sometimes, a tourist will be asked for a sum of money to borrow, always with the promise that this will soon be returned or sent (which is legally impossible from Tunisia).
Here applies a simple rule without exception: Money, no matter how much, once given out of your hand, is lost - it will never be returned! If you hand over money, no matter for what claim, consider it always a gift - if you are not comfortable with that, don't give money at all!

There are significant parts of the economy of Tunisia basing on such fraud or "tricks" - and they are brought to an even higher (more expensive) level with real estate, business "opportunities" and, especially, with "love" relations.

If considerable sums of money are involved, please note: No money without a contract (an official one, legalised, that is, there are numerous state bureaus in every town that legalise such contracts for a very small fee) which includes the reasons for the payment and the conditions of repayment.

More than one tourist, more than hundreds, and more than thousands, have lost money which was meant for buying a flat or house, cars, business goods. Tunisian police and courts likely consider payment of money without a contract as a gift - therefore: NEVER WITHOUT A CONTRACT!


In short: Never ever give any money to someone who is looking for help from you! No matter the story, it is almost always a lie! If you were to invest, do business or engage in personal relationships in Tunisia, make always sure that you are well-informed ahead of time! Get information from a lawyer that YOU have chosen!
