Well I have a girlfriend in Canada. And, uh, that's why you've never seen her! And she's got big boobs. And one time, one time, she let me touch them! So yeah, that's the uh, truth .

From Canada, to the US, I always used the post office. That's what ebay sellers seemed to prefer over one from the bank.

Western Union was incredibly expensive compaired to it, since they also wire the money.

Post office would work in theory, but I don't think Poland is one of the countries that accepts them.

...Welll then....I guess won't post PICS when she visits me here in January, Feb & March...

I'm in the military and that is how I met her (last year in Germany). She's actually from Lima,Peru though....

And now, back to the original topic.....

I hope you didn't take my joke personally. I was acting like that nerd in high school that claims that he has a girlfriend, but she lives in Canada. Hence the reason you never see her.

I don't doubt that you have a girlfriend in Germany. I was only trying to make a joke, a terrible one, but a joke nonetheless.

I just did some research and you can get an IMO from the post office, but as was mentioned Poland (or pretty much any country outside of north america and the carib.) is not included. looks like im off to the bank tomorrow to try them!

I used to work at a bank and we would do a international money order in almost any currency. They were kinda expensive, 15-20 bucks if I remember right. What about sending cash certified/registered? Or sending a check and adding some extra for the conversion. When I lived in the UK, they would charge me a couple of pounds extra for converting a check from the US.
