If I were to follow Marko's statement, I also live in a 3rd world
country, which is Romania. Over here these services are available to
absolutely everybody, no matter whether they have a credit or debit
card. I've been using them for quite some time to transfer money in
and out, without a single problem, be the transfers local or
international. It's true that sometimes the managing fees were not
exactly friendly (depends on each bank), but it was overall a lot less
expensive than Western Union.
I'm not familiar with the North American banking practices at all,
but it might not hurt to push them a little ;)

If it's there, and you can see it, it's real.
If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it.
