      Hi Emmanuel,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      As a friendly reminder, while we do not represent any company we feature on our pages, we can offer you general advice.

      You can send money directly to your receiver’s bank account through their official website or from a participating Western Union agent location. Before you send money to a bank account, you’ll need to know what information’s required.

      You may also see a video or step-by-step guide on how to send money to Vietnam or Nigeria via their website.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,
