SafeSend is the first service that Bank of America has developed exclusively for Hispanics. With SafeSend, consumers can send money by phone or electronically to family and friends in Mexico 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without having to leave the comfort of their own homes. Bank of America is launching the SafeSend service nationwide with plans to expand the service to other countries in the near future.
