As it says - -- - "We have temporarily suspended direct paypal donations due to some communications difficulties. Our apologies for the inconvenience."

Based in the UK, would love to spend the cash, this has been a holding statement for at least a year. Are we any further on the old paypal issue guys........

I would be the midlleman, if you would trust me.

PM me, send me the funds, and I will forward them to Seti.

Can't guarantee you the star power, however.

Thank you, for the offer, but if I do that for each one you can easily see where that is going. :-)

Not long ago Erik was playing middleman and he saw to it you got your star. Not sure he is still doing it though. Try asking Angela, she probably could tell you.

That am not sure, good question, and I see what you mean. May be a solution.
If we do it isn't that common, we are still a little backward :-)

Thank you, I left that barn door open.......
, very good, best response I've had in a long time.

Think we forgot about the world over here 50 years ago, the rest of the world wishing they had never heard of us, day in day out. We are sooooooo..... Backwards.

A good laugh ... :-)

Any how............................

Help me spend my Pound/Dollar/Euro..... whatever Mr SETI.....

Have you asked your bank how much an international moneyorder costs. That is another way to donate. Prepaid Visa is a good suggestion.
I can also ask Eric if he is willing to be the middleman for your donation. Send me a PM, if you need more help.

I've been looking into this for a little while, too and I think that you will find that the Lunatics site can help, in this respect. Take a look at their site at http://lunatics.kwsn.net

@craggyislander....

there are many pre-paid cards here, but many have a monthly fee. the best one i came across & now using for nearly 2 years is the Virgin pre-paid Mastercard.

It beats paying Western Union their high charges & ensures that seti gets the funds I send.

I've suggested a couple of times but I'm not sure they are available in your particular country that you might try the Paypal debit cards. They work just like any bank debit card but are tied to your Paypal account.
