Money Transfer Problem

I was trying to buy a CD from a friend. It costs £6 UK sterling plus some shipping cost. So I went to my bank (here in Indonesia) and told them that I wanted to send £10 UK sterling. The teller looked at me in disbelieve.
Just £10 UK sterling, sir?
Yup. What's the problem?
The fee is US$20

Hah? That much? I cancelled the transfer.

This sucks! This is how it feels living in a distrust society. I've got to open an PayPal account. Any experience in opening PayPal account from Indonesia?

mungkin pembelian dengan paypal bisa jadi solusi masalah kaya gini. atau dengan ecurrency lain seperti egold, liberty reserve atau webmoney. Cuma buat saya yang belum punya kartu kredit, susah juga ya buat verifikasi paypal?? :(
